I’m a lifestyle writer focusing mainly on health, including physical, mental and social wellbeing. I also write about food from a social or anthropological angle. I’ve written a few travel pieces about my honeymoon in Canada too. (It was a great excuse to keep looking at the photos).

I’m the Editor of Digest Magazine, an illustrated food magazine I co-founded with my husband in 2012. 

My editorial clients have included The Guardian, Delicious Magazine, Healthy Food Guide, Positive News and Fire & Knives. I’ve written for digital platforms including Underpinned and Flight Centre

I started my career in B2B publishing at Newzeye, working across two monthly building and redevelopment titles and quarterly supplements. I then moved into commercial publishing, working on food and health titles at Eye to Eye Media.

I’ve also worked in several newsrooms on placements, including the Liverpool Echo, Merseymart, Chester Chronicle, BBC North West Tonight and ITV‘s Martin Lewis programme.
