In 2013 I co-launched a digital baking magazine called "Brilliant Baking" on iTunes and Google Play. My role was to interview celebrity bakers, business owners, bloggers and home bakers.
I now work with a variety of small, creative businesses. From actors and authors through to creative software and interior designers.
I love working with people and small businesses and seeing those businesses grow.
As you can see from my work experience below, I have a varied work background starting at the age of 21 when I moved to the London to work as a buyers assistant.

Many of my interests revolve around my family, plus I love music and am finally learning to play the piano!
I began my working life as a freelance designer and pattern cutter working for a small Coventry firm. After earning my stripes I took to the bright lights and big city of London where I became a buyers assistant at Principles for Men. After a couple of years in London I returned to my home town where I undertook training in complementary therapies. After qualifying, I set up my first business as a therapist, eventually accepting a position as a Further Education lecturer in complementary therapies and anatomy and physiology. After having my third child, I left the college and turned my hand to writing blogs for my own and other websites.
In 2010, I turned my hobby of baking into a full blown business which I ran for 5 years . During that time we launched "Brilliant Baking" magazine and YouTube channel.
I currently work with several small businesses including actors, writers, trainers and interior designers, growing their social media presence and organic followers.
