Throughout my career I have delivered marketing and PR campaigns in different sectors including education, charity, transport, local authorities and professional services.
This includes writing copy for web pages, staff magazines, marketing letters, newsletters and press releases. I offer a versatile and compelling writing style keeping the audience firmly in mind.
Both the Observer travel section and Lonely Planet magazine have published my submissions and I enjoy writing fiction in my spare time.
My degree included a semester in the USA and I studied a TEFL course in Spain, followed by a year teaching in Poland. I am a fan of cinema and live music. I have three young children and work flexibly around my family.
