Secretariat | Central Government


I am a Bristol-based civil servant, yoga teacher, and psychology enthusiast. Starting as a regional journalist in Liverpool, my highlights included interviewing the Attorney General and Kylie Minogue…not on the same day. I’ve had a number of PR roles, some days teaching diverse cultural groups how to sell themselves to media, and other days telling the press about anything from sheds to anti-smoking campaigns. A quick segue into running my own business as a comms consultant and media trainer, a few years running a press office newsdesk at the Health and Safety Executive and now I write to and from Ministers for Central Government. Outside work I sing at Clifton Cathedral, I’ve recently qualified as a Hatha yoga teacher, leading classes when I can, and I am currently studying for an MSc in Strategy, Change and Leadership at the University of Bristol.
