I got into copywriting because I had always been a bookworm* and wanted to find a career where I could pursue my passion for writing.
Copywriting turned out to be a great choice for me, and what keeps it interesting nearly two decades on is how rewarding it is to help companies communicate in a human, accessible way.
My career path has given me experience in every aspect of communications, from copywriting to editing, proofreading, magazine editing, marketing, internal communications and PR.
I’ve worked for specialist insurer Hiscox, insurance broking firm Willis and Insurance Times. I’ve also worked for contract publisher Wardour and specialist City PR agency Lucid Communication (now part of Luther Pendragon).
*Favourite books include The Kite Runner, The Help, Shadow of the Wind, I Am Pilgrim, and all of the Shardlake novels.
