In 2018, she was featured on BBC One’s Street Auction series, which is hosted by Paul Martin and sees people donate unwanted treasures which were then auctioned to raise money to benefit someone within their community.

In an interview with Stylist in 2019, Izzie spoke about how she first became an auctioneer, saying: “After I finished my degree I had no money, no job and nowhere to live. So I did some work experience at the local auction house [and went from there].” “I kind of fell into this job but I absolutely love it,” she told BristolLive in 2019.
Navigating the male-dominated industry has not been a walk in the park for Izzie. She told Stylist: “I do sometimes get older men presuming that I don’t know anything. It’s just a matter of overcoming their pre-conceived ideas, winning them round and gaining their confidence.”
Izzie was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain – with a Grade 8 in viola, Izzie joined the exclusive orchestra when she was just 16. In an interview with Great British Life in 2017, she said: “I planned to be a professional musician but didn’t enjoy music college. It wasn’t for me.”
