Meet The Team: Catriona’s Story, Social Media Executive

Meet The Team - Catriona Hannah Social Media Executive

Hello! I’m Catriona Hannah and I’m the Social Media Executive here at Victress. 

I have a love for all things social, spending a shameful amount of time scrolling through Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and Facebook. I’m passionate about the power of social media and believe that it should never be underestimated. My university background, experience and determination to always be learning has led me here, building a career in social media.

Skills to be a Social Media Executive  

I entered the world of Digital Marketing fresh out of university, after graduating with a BA in Media & Communication. I started uni as an incredibly shy 18 year old with a dream of being a radio producer but very quickly realised it wasn’t for me. I grew more than I ever imagined I could during my 4 years at university and gained more confidence than I thought I was even capable of. Every mention of marketing appealed to me and I developed a serious love for the industry. By the time I graduated in 2019, I knew it was the career for me. 

Leaving uni, I landed a job as a Digital Marketing Consultant at a data consultancy company, before moving onto a Digital Marketing Executive role in the software industry. The skills and experience I gained in those positions led me to becoming a Social Media Executive at Victress, my proudest achievement yet.

I won’t lie, getting to this point hasn’t always been easy. I’ve had some real issues with my confidence over the years and I’d be silly to think that hasn’t impacted my journey. Throughout my teenage years, my shyness got the better of me more often than not and, although I did well in school, I didn’t have the confidence to push myself socially. When I started university, I had to push myself every single day with public speaking, presentations and pitches. My confidence grew, I gained some self-belief and I found my voice. Gaining confidence socially has enhanced my ability to become a Social Media Executive and to engage with Victress’ clients.

Plants, Pubs and Pickle

When I’m not working at Victress as the Social Media Executive, I run my own small business selling handmade macrame homeware. I set it up during lockdown in Summer 2020 as a way to stay busy but it quickly became a passion of mine and took off in a way I never imagined. Working from home, I always have some reality TV playing in the background, a cup of tea in my hand and my 5 month old kitten, Pickle, cuddled up next to me. After work, I love to read and cook but always make time for the weekly pub quiz at my local (even though my team never wins). 

I’m a lover of plants and am at my happiest when I’m surrounded by nature. Living in Scotland makes that very easy and you can usually find me up a hill or walking along the beach. When I can’t get out in nature, I camp out in my bedroom with my 24 houseplants. It does the trick!
