Zuzana joined us in May 2016 and is Grant’s right hand on all things financial. Since leaving Slovakia in 2010, where she was working for Slovakia’s national ruling political party, she joined her partner to help set up a deli café in Brighton.
Having grown up and schooled in Slovakia, straight out of high school, she enrolled on a bachelor degree in Politics and European Studies graduating in 2008 and then a masters in regional development – her dissertation: the distribution of funds to European Union members, after which, she worked for a time for the Direction Social Democracy (SMER-SD) party organising events for heads of region.
After a long road of working in many jobs including a receptionist of a motel, a senior barista, and assistant head of a language school, she eventually enrolled onto a Universal Accountancy course in Brighton.
She now divides her time between being finance assistant to Grant at Journeys by Design, part-time student and full-time mother.
