Indie started her career in Program Management, setting up social action projects in different communities, the aim was to bring communities together and empower people to become active citizens and not passive bystanders, this meant partnering with major companies like Sky, HSBC, Nandos and local government. Indie was responsible for ensuring over 7,7800 + young people successfully completed the program and achieved their goals.

After 6 phenomenal years of building a management team across London and Surrey, Indie moved into the Tech startup ecosystem where she now heads the international programs department at Foundervine, a startup tech training consultancy company that works to empower anyone with a dream of starting, developing and scaling a business. The company works to ensure all founders are tech-enabled and have access to all tools and resources needed to thrive.

Indie has returned to school to achieve her degree in computer science at Harvard University. Her goal is to equip people, regardless of gender, race and disability, with the tools needed to achieve their dreams and live their best lives.

Now, Indie is in a position of leadership where she empowers the companies of today and tomorrow, ensuring all companies and organisations are tech-enabled and can weather the storm of any social, economical or environmental change.
