I’m a storyteller by heart; writing is one of my first loves.
After starting my career in my twenties jumping from customer service to admin to becoming a PA in the corporate world, I accidentally fell into a marketing role and have been lucky enough to forge a career doing something I love; writing.
I made my way into the charity sector after the birth of my first child and haven’t looked back since, I really enjoy cause-related marketing and communications that are able impact social change.
I’ve loved writing since I was old enough to pick up a pen, my favourite past-time as a child was coming up with elaborate stories, home-made magazines and poems.
Over the years I’ve started and completed many creative writing projects and courses but life got in the way, I lost some of my creative spark and confidence in my writing skills and didn’t see most of them through to fruition.
It wasn’t until the birth of my son, at 31, that my creativity was awoken. I started a blog and documented the trials and tribulations of Motherhood, after a couple of years I worried about oversharing and deleted it.
But my passion for writing has never gone away. Ironically I have less time and energy than ever with two young children, whilst juggling a career, but I have more creative drive than ever and a desire to share my thoughts with the world. This time I am also working on my confidence; to share my writing freely as well as accepting that I won’t be everyone’s cup of tea and that is o.k!
If you’re reading this, I hope that you are one of the people who my words do resonate with.
