A seasoned writer and communications specialist, with strong media relations experience and a drive to support those less fortunate. Skills have been broadened through senior roles within the public service and humanitarian sectors, building external relations, advocacy and publications expertise. An outstanding writer and storyteller.
Overseas aid work in South Asia and West Africa has included posts with a variety of humanitarian agencies drawing on experience gained within the UK National Health Service (NHS) and in local Government. Recently worked with the Rainbows children’s hospice charity across the East Midlands and supported global resilience through initiatives funded by the Rockefeller Foundation in the US. This year concluded a personal writing project – a novel - focusing on Pakistan following its 2005 earthquake. But I am now seeking a return to the humanitarian sector.
