In early 2018, she started to work at Studios 301 alongside senior engineer Simon Cohen (Justin Bieber, Starley, Thelma Plum, Illy) as his vocal assistant. In a recent Alumni interview, Charlotte said „If you have a good can-do attitude… then you can achieve anything“ . That attitude has shone through and supported her advances at 301. She collaborates with local Sydney artists as a writer, producer and engineer. Charlotte is using her platform to encourage other young people in her field to create a strong and safe community.
