Journalism

I am a freelance health and disability journalist postgraduate with a tenacious character, a sharp eye for a story and a strong writing style. I have a proven freelance record, writing on health and disability issues for The Guardian, Independent, Telegraph, Psychologies, Top Sante, and Sunday Times Magazine among others. All stories have been sourced and pitched by me.

I am also currently working as a news editor for the College of Occupational Therapists. I source, write and edit news and features for its flagship publication OTnews, a monthly magazine which focuses on the latest news and issues within the health sector. It is distributed to over 31,000 occupational therapists across the UK.

I’ve also worked with health organisations including the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, for who I starred in a vlog and spoke during the parliamentary launch of their campaign for greater investment in antibiotics. I’ve conducted multiple media interviews on health and disability for the Today programme, BBC 2 Jeremy Vine show, Channel 5, Sky, local radio and international television.

For two years I also wrote a weekly double-page spread for the London Lite, a regional paper owned by Associated Newspapers, helping Londoners find love through my blind date column. One couple who met via the paper have since got married – never thought I’d end up being Cilla Black!

All commissions considered.
