Biography

I’m a journalist turned PR pro who has particular expertise in writing blogs and for the press and specialises in health and wellbeing and innovative businesses.
With more than 15 years’ PR experience – plus time spent as a journalist and editor, I can sniff out a good story, write it up and promote it in the best way to attract your target audience.
I’m a Yorkshire lass, so straight-talking and grit are part of my DNA. I’m also constantly curious and love learning, so have a CIPR Diploma and MA Journalism.
Two years into running my own business, I received a call to inform me I had been named as a Sage Top 100 Global Business Influencer and invited to a fancy do at the Shard in London. Not long after, I got another call to tell me I was the Top PR Micro-Influencer of 2017 in the world! Who knew?! Little old me in my garden hut in Leeds.
When not writing, you can find me hiking in the Yorkshire countryside with my Beagle; tending to my menagerie (three ducks, two dogs, one toddler and a man) or searching for the perfect Rioja (suggestions welcome!)
