I have an insatiable curiosity about people and their lives and a constant thirst for new knowledge. My background is in journalism, so I am naturally very  inquisitive. I enjoy writing my blog and am a contributory blogger for the UK Huffington Post. My blog is ranked 5th top PR blog in the UK and my LinkedIn page was among the top 5% viewed profiles in 2012.

I am a public relations consultant who has worked with Conservative politicians am presently working part of the week with Carers Trust Cambridgeshire and Carers Trust Peterborough as their Communications and Content Officer, and have also worked successfully with innovators and entrepreneurs in the healthcare and biotech industry. I provide consultancy to Abcodia, an award winning company seeking to develop early cancer biomarkers with global partners through its access to 5 million serum samples at a UCL biobank, and Arecor, whose unique biologics stabilisation technology could help transform the way our future medicines are delivered.

My recent clients have included Global Regulatory Services, which provides consultancy to global clients within the life science industry, achieving positive media coverage and raising their profile with influential stakeholders. I also secured national media coverage for recent campaigns with Antibiotic Action, Sepsis UK and Adoption with Humanity, a campaign group which seeks fairer adoptions in the UK.

I was Press Officer to Euro MP Robert Sturdy for almost nine years and was the Conservative Party Press Officer during the 2009 Euro Election and 2005 General Election. I worked closely with Conservative parliamentary candidates during the 2010 General Election and produced creative campaign videos.

I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations – and a finalist or the 2012 CIPR PRide Awards in the Eastern Region – and adhere to their professional Code of Conduct. I also belong to the Hansard Society, Cambridge Network, Cam Creative, Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce and Cambridge Speakers’ Club.

In my free time I enjoy long walks in the countryside and am a member of the Cambridge Rambling Group and the Ramblers Association.
