About me

I'm an award-winning journalist and author who has worked in print and online for 14 years. Previously I worked as Executive Editor for HuffPost UK - the second most-read digital news site in the UK. As well as being deputy to the EIC and managing site-wide and global editorial projects, I looked after the Lifestyle section as well as the Blogs team. Named in Balance magazine's Wellness 100 list for work across wellbeing and mental health, at present I work as a freelance digital consultant and journalist having written for The Pool, The Guardian, Red magazine, Cosmo, Stylist, Daily Telegraph, Balance and Women's Health. Most recently, I have written a book, Chase The Rainbow, published by Simon & Schuster and am working on my second, In Search Of Silence. Other roles have included public speaking at major B2B and consumer events, broadcast for BBC and Channel 5, as well as judging for the Own Media Awards (chair), First Women Awards, British Book Awards and the Sony World Photography Awards.
