My Occupation Freelance journalist
My Bio After graduating from Cambridge University, I dabbled with various career options that saw me lead tours in the Middle East and Africa, sell woolly socks to cold-footed Australians and ice coconut buns in a production bakery. But when I was called into the boss's office for not being generous enough with my coconut (yes, really), it was time to get serious.

Having already sold some articles and travel features, I returned to university to complete an NCTJ-accredited PgDip in Newspaper Journalism.

Since then, I have trained and worked with many newspapers and magazines as a journalist and sub-editor, including the Daily Mail, the Irish Daily Mail, the Aberdeen Press and Journal, the Press Association and Northern Woman magazine.

As an in-house brand manager, I have produced promotional content and advertising material for Sea to Summit, Arc'Teryx, Black Diamond and Bridgedale.

Now that I am mother to a beautiful babbling baby, I work on a freelance basis from my home in Belfast.
