Oh, hello

I’m a freelance journalist, writer and editor. I’m a student money expert. And I turn complex or difficult subjects into good reading.

I cover personal finance, higher education, parenting, mental health and more. My subject expertise is financial literacy – especially student finance and everyday money skills.

I also work on charity comms, PR and copywriting (especially for and about youth audiences).

I’m a former editor of The Push Guide to Which University (print book series) and author of The Student Moneymanual 2012-2019. I create digital content, including websites and copywriting, for charities including Action for Children.

My experience in publishing and journalism spans:

  • Words in the UK national press and outlets all over the web
  • Gaining outreach links and press coverage for Save the Student (online – student money advice)
  • Editorial Manager, FitPro (print magazines – health & fitness: consumer, B2B)
  • Editor, The Push Guide to Which University (print book series – higher education)
  • Regional journalist, Mondiale Publishing (trade journalism – bars, restaurants and clubs: B2B)

My training and qualifications include sub-editing (NCTJ), finding stories in data (CIJ), solutions journalism, and good editorial practice. I was long-listed for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize 2019.
