I am passionate about writing and was inspired to become a journalist as a young girl after watching Kate Adie OBE, on TV reporting from war zones around the world.
Whilst studying for my A-Levels I pursued my journalism ambition with determination and gained valuable work experience at a national newspaper and magazine before gaining a B.Sc Degree in English and Geography.
My journalism career began after completing a Pre-entry to Journalism course (NCTJ) when I became a trainee reporter on a weekly newspaper.
I have 16 years experience in regional news, working as a multi-media journalist for both a weekly and newspaper, as well as a glossy magazine for the Newsquest Media Group I have covered everything from local news to features, breaking news and local government issues.
I have been privileged to meet some fascinating people along the way and enjoyed sharing their life stories.
Among the highlights were interviewing the late Sir Terry Wogan, launching a fundraising appeal (and reaching the target) for a mum who had a stroke after the birth of her twins, meeting Kate Adie in person and learning to drive a Russian tank.
No two days were the same. One morning I would be writing advertorials for firms such as Brace’s Bread and Volkswagen and in the afternoon covering an inquiry or council meeting.
I was fortunate to be able to travel as part of my job, writing features for the travel supplement.
