I am a freelance feature writer, copywriter and digital production journalist with 10 years’ experience. I have written or worked for The Guardian, Vice, The Independent, the i paper, The Huffington Post and the BBC. 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.

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 about lived experience of a life-changing diagnosis, including depression, stroke, MS, cancer and heart disease.
