I am a freelance features journalist with the best part of a decade’s experience writing, editing and commissioning for national newspapers and magazines.
Before going freelance, I was Deputy Editor of Good Health, the Daily Mail’s weekly health section, for several years, and before that I was an Associate Features Editor at the title. As well as the Mail, my work has appeared in the Daily Telegraph, Red magazine, Women’s Health, Grazia, the New York Post, the Guardian, and the Observer, among others.
My particular interest and expertise is in unravelling and explaining the science of health so it can be understood by even the most hopeless of arts graduates (like me). In 2016, I won an Association of British Science Writers’ award for a piece on myths about the human metabolism.
As well as my journalism work, I am the author of the blog The Uterus Monologues, where I write about my own experience of recurrent miscarriage and curate the stories of others who have not had a straightforward path to parenthood. I am always interested in commissions that address fertility, pregnancy and loss in all its complexity.
