I joined Epilepsy Society as publications editor in 2009 and am responsible for editing and producing our membership magazine Epilepsy Review and writing content for our website. I am also responsible for keeping our news site up to date with all the latest news about epilepsy.

Before working for Epilepsy Society I wrote for the Independent, Times and Guardian and other national publications. 

At Epilepsy Society I am always keen to keep our supporters up-to-date with the latest developments from our research team and, through our publications, to support people with epilepsy in managing their condition. I  attend as many epilepsy conferences as possible to make sure I can report back on news of epilepsy in the wider world.

Outside of work I like anything to do with dance, the theatre and walking.
