I support the Department of Psychiatry with both internal and external communications.
I have nearly 20 years’ experience across media and communications in journalism and the charity sector.
After studying anthropology at UCL, I began a decade-long career as a journalist, initially in local newspapers, then working as a national TV news producer at Channel Five News and at the BBC, mostly on the One O’Clock News bulletin.
Before joining the university, I spent nine years in the charity sector, primarily working on women and girls’ rights, with a significant focus on mental health (particularly the impact of trauma and abuse).
I love learning and while working in London, I completed a graduate certificate in History and an MSc in Gender, Sexuality and Society at Birkbeck.
I am a trustee of Oxford-based young people’s behaviour support charity One Eighty.
I work Monday to Thursday (until approx 3pm each day).
