Head of Communications & Customer Service


I’ve been at Eureka! since 2011 and look after our communications and customer service team. I’m originally from Derby, a big fan of communicating via GIF, and have a freckle at the back of my left eyeball.

The big Q: What’s your favourite magical object?

Jamie’s Magic Torch: Primarily for the theme tune (, but I was OBSESSED as a kid #80skids

Hit me up with media or press enquiries, questions about our online presence, filming/photography requests, or just to share photos of otters.
