I'm a UK-based travel and lifestyle writer, copywriter and trained newspaper journalist with more than 15 years of writing experience. I have a Bsc (Hons) Psychology degree and I have written for a variety of national publications including Escapism, Foodism, loveExploring, SUITCASE, Culture Trip, The Guardian, Lonely Planet, Breathe and Rough Guides.
My key areas of interest are culture, well-being (Psychology) and family travel and I have written widely on the Caribbean and southern and eastern Africa. That said, I cover a wide range of UK and international travel as well as a variety of topics, from parenting and food and drink, to health, wellbeing and lifestyle.
I currently live in Hertford with my husband and two young children.
After studying for my NCTJ in newspaper journalism in Liverpool, I pursued a newspaper career with the Manchester Evening News group, covering local news and writing features on local issues, travel and lifestyle. In 2009 I picked up the 02 Features Writer of the Year Award and the following year, I moved to London, to work on the features desks of various consumer women's magazines, covering real-life features and lifestyle.
Between 2013 and 2014, I took a short break from freelance life to work as a brand journalist for Virgin Holidays. Since then, I have continued to freelance across travel and lifestyle writing, copywriting and content writing. I am also in the process of writing my first collection of children’s story books.
