About me

I’m a UK based travel writer, blogger and journalist with more than a decade of writing experience. I am NCTJ-trained and I live in Hertford with my husband and two children. 


Throughout my career I have worked on the features desks of consumer women's magazines and as a freelancer, I have written for a range of print and online publications including Escapism, Foodism, LoveExploring, SUITCASE, Tidlrs, Virgin and Rough Guides. I cover everything from food and culture-focused travel to hotel and spa reviews. My career highlights include a three month trip through eastern and southern Africa.

Aside from travel and lifestyle writing, I have a wealth of commercial and copywriting experience and while working as the Brand Journalist for Virgin Holidays, I helped deliver branded content across a range of platforms. This included the company's own Virgin Holidays blog and digital magazine, as well as national newspapers including The Express and The Sunday Times.


As a freelancer, I continue to work across a wide range of consumer and commercial editorial so please get in touch if you would like to know more.
