Overview

I am a freelance features writer and digital production journalist with ten years’ experience working for publishers including The Guardian, Vice, The Independent and the BBC.

I specialise in health stories. I’ve interviewed a leading GP in the Ebola emergency camps and asked farmers how Brexit will affect their mental health. I’ve reported back from a climate anxiety workshop, and explored how cuts to NHS sexual health services are giving syphilis a second chance.

I have experience sourcing and writing sensitive personal stories with people who have direct experience of ill health and difficult diagnoses including depression, anxiety, MS, cancer and heart disease.

I started out as the features editor at the UK’s leading magazine for GPs, Pulse, and was named one of MHP’s 30 To Watch for my work in this role.
