About me

I provide creative communication solutions for the UK’s leading health and science organisations. As an independent consultant with more than 20 years experience in journalism, public relations, media relations, and strategic communications, I specialise in providing a dedicated, tailored and creative approach to clients’ communication needs. I can provide support for distinct, one-off projects through to long-term strategic support.

As a former BBC News and Current Affairs Producer, I have an inherent understanding of the way the news agenda is created and the way journalists operate. I have spent the majority of my career communicating complex and, often, controversial stories in the health and science sectors. I worked at Cancer Research UK for seven years as Head of Media, building and guiding a first-class team that won numerous awards for the charity, including three Communiqué awards (including the prestigious Campaign of the Year), being named ‘most effective charity press office’ for four consecutive years, and winning the Medical Journalists Association's Medical Charity of the Year award.

In 2010, I set up my own independent creative communications consultancy and, since then, have worked closely with senior leaders at some of the UK’s most influential public health and science organisations, including the Francis Crick Institute, Imperial College London, the NHS, and Anthony Nolan.

The Francis Crick Institute has just published a brochure looking at the excellent work being undertaken by the Public Engagement team. I was commissioned to research and write the brochure, while also liaising with an external designer on the look of the document. The brochure is available for download here.
