During my time studying French at Exeter University, I worked for one year as Personal Assistant to the Head of Media Relations for a multi-national telecoms company in Paris, France. This was my first experience of writing in a professional capacity and I was hooked.
After graduating, I worked in PR departments and press offices of national charities and other organisations based in London and Surrey, including Help the Aged (now AgeUK), Revitalise, the Church of England and the National Trust.
Ever since the arrival of my eldest son in 2007, I have worked as a freelance journalist, editor and copywriter from my office in Epsom, Surrey. I am a member of the Society of Authors and hold the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR)'s Diploma in Public Relations.
When not working, I love walking in the glorious Surrey countryside, reading, treating myself to trips to the theatre and ballet and spending time with with my family.
I currently have clients in many sectors, including shipping, charity, heritage, health and wellbeing and engineering sectors. In addition, I count several digital marketing, design and communication agencies, financial service providers and manufacturers amongst my satisfied customers.
I relish a challenge and can undertake any topic, scale or style of writing. I am organised, dedicated and creative and understand the importance of meeting - and surpassing - expectations.
