During her time at McDonald’s, Low was tasked with driving business and brand growth, as well as overseeing top-line sales and market share.

She managed the overseas development and implementation of support materials and services for chapters in the area of marketing, communications, public relations and event management.

Most recently, OCBC Bank unveiled a campaign titled "The Dining Out Effect", which aims to provide dining-out offers as Singaporeans look forward to eating out again. This in line with the launch of phase two, where restaurants and F&B outlets are allowed to re-open and resume dining-in operations. Done in collaboration with creative agency GOVT Singapore, the three-part campaign was conceptualised, shot, edited and produced in four days. It featured theatre actors showing a range of emotions Singaporeans might feel to be able to dine out, namely happy, excited, and touched to tears. The ads also featured dining deals by OCBC Cards to help Singaporeans celebrate dining out again.
