I’m a very experienced health journalist, editor and copywriter, having contributed to a wide variety of titles since leaving my role as deputy editor on Top Sante magazine in October 2004.
Currently I'm writing a series of articles to promote health awareness for Nuffield Health Hospitals, and have recently completed a six-month contract as managing editor at PSP Rare, taking care of the British Heart Foundation's membership magazine Heart Matters.
In the past, I've written extensively for the Daily Mirror’s Your Life section, including nine months as acting health editor at the paper. I also managed and edited Dr Miriam Stoppard’s health section on a freelance basis between February 2008 and January 2011, which involved frequent writing on edition.
Over the years I’ve edited pullout sections for the Daily Mirror, and been published in the Daily Express and The Sun, as well as a cross-section of women’s titles, including Top Santé, Healthy, Bella, Now, Family Circle, Slimming World, Best, Essentials, First, Spirit & Destiny, Boots Health & Beauty, Woman’s Own and Healthy Food Guide.
I've also done copywriting for pharmaceutical company Atlantis Healthcare and Fuel PR, and am regularly invited to attend media advisory boards held by public relations companies.
I’m a very experienced health journalist, having written features for a wide variety of consumer publications, from national newspapers such as the Daily Mirror, Daily Express and the Sun to women’s magazines, including Top Sante, Healthy, Bella, Now, Family Circle, Slimming World, Best, Essentials, First, Spirit & Destiny, Boots Health & Beauty, Woman’s Own and Healthy Food Guide.
In addition, I’ve written for Heart Matters, British Heart Foundation’s membership magazine, One Heart, Atlantis Healthcare’s patient programme magazine and for regional press on behalf of Nuffield Health Hospitals.
