Please see below for a sample of my published writing. In my work I strive to write authentically and to explore the topic from a fresh angle and with depth and honesty.

I managed and edited Psychologies’ year-long Real Eco awards. The awards focussed on a different product type each month and aimed to research, test and review the brands making the most effort to be as sustainable and ethical as possible.
TRAID: Educating for sustainability
I was delighted to work for the sustainable clothing charity TRAID on its 2020 project to help teachers educate about sustainability. The work being done is fascinating, inspiring and so important.
Cliff camping feature
Against my better judgement, I camped for the night – literally – on the edge of a cliff. An amazing, but terrifying, experience.

Blacksmith Ashlee Donaldson is inspired by her family’s heritage, the slow, mindful process of metalwork and the beauty of nature. As one of the few women in her trade, it was amazing to interview her and learn all about it.

In 2020, my Eco Worrier column evolved to have a Q&A format. Each month, I answer a reader’s sustainability question with an honest, unbiased and well-researched answer.
Psychologies’ Eco Worrier columnist: year 1

As a queer woman, it is important to me that I represent and give a voice to the LGBTQIA+ community in my work. In this Pride feature for ‘Psychologies’, I write about my experiences and how labels can affect us.
Costa Rica travel piece
I recently visited Costa Rica and have written about the country’s wildlife, wellness spots and forward-thinking sustainability and community projects.

Inspired by her mother’s recipes, former teacher Kate Griffin handcrafts natural gins and spirits. I spoke to her about managing her work-life balance and how her local community supports her.
Despite being veggie for years, I never thought I’d go vegan. Two years later, and I feel stronger, more nourished and love cooking and eating out – because of going vegan. Psychologies asked me to write about my journey, and how my mind and body has changed.
My Life, My Way: Gabriela Lerner
I first met Gabriela on a retreat in Tobago and was honoured to work with her again.

She was truly inspiring and the feature explores her journey to this.

After its first year of Pride in 2017, the Isle of Wight hosts UK Pride. I head there for ‘DIVA’ and discover an honest community spirit of kindness and connection.
Exploring the meaning of freedom
In this feature I unpick what freedom really means, and how embracing it can create true calm and better relationships.
As an introvert, I’ve often been overlooked and have also doubted myself. In this feature, I explore why being beta is actually a strength and a hugely positive attribute in the workplace.
