After seven years working in the charity sector I embarked on a career change to become a full-time journalist.
Alongside writing for print and online publications, I co-present and produce the weekly radio show Very Loose Women on London's ResonanceFM.
I have a special interest in social and cultural history, international development and environmental causes including rewilding, and women's rights.
