3rd Level Course:

Tourism & Marketing, DIT
Why did you choose this course?

I had an interest in marketing and as a kid I always wanted to manage a hotel so this seemed like a good combination.

How long is/was the course? 

Four years with the option to do Erasmus in Year 3 (Do it!) 

Current role / employment: 

Self-employed. I run a small marketing agency; so I guess my degree was a good choice and help business owners get their message out to the right people online.

Best career achievement to date: 

Speaking on stage with my dad; that was pretty cool as family means a lot to me.

Have you any advice for our current students? 

Be nice to each other, enjoy your time at Ratoath College. Some of my favourite times are with friends I made at RC. Remember, the teachers are there to help you get what’s best for you!

Best memory of Ratoath College: 

Sports day was always awesome but my favourite memory was of running the racecourse when we were at Fairyhouse racecourse. I still go running up there regularly and smile when I cross that finish line because it brings back some great memories.
