About me

An award-winning communications manager with a proven ability to deliver results, I am passionate about what I do and am confident working under pressure to tight deadlines; tackling major projects and challenging subjects.
With more than a decade of media experience as a journalist on regional newspapers, latterly as News Editor of a major evening paper, I moved into corporate communications in 2005.
Now working freelance, I am happy writing everything from complex technical articles, corporate websites, brochures or reports, to magazine features and news stories, and can also co-ordinate the full project management of your publications. Alternatively, I will integrate with your team for specific projects, or can assist as an editor or proofreader, ensuring accuracy as well as consistency of style and tone.

I work with some brilliant design agencies, both in Cumbria and further afield, as well as very talented website developers, so if you need the full package, it can easily be arranged.

My clients include universities, event management and tourism companies, business development organisations, law firms and retailers, as well as the national and regional press. Formal references are available on request, or take a look at the testimonial page of this website for what some of my clients have to say about me.
