Fast track, ahem, 16 years later and I spent the next half of my life winning media awards, working as a journalist for BBC News, ITV News and I even set up my own video production company making documentary films and reporting for Channel 4 News.
Alongside, juggling working in the media, running a business and having babies unexpectedly, I spent my time ‘off’ training in journalism to postgraduate level and with BBC News and even being funded by the NCTJ (i.e. the head honcho organisation in the journalism world for the training of people who don’t normally come from such diverse backgrounds as me).
I have since won international media awards for sharing your stories, I have worked for national press and I still write columns for newspapers as well as working online as an ‘influencer,’ regularly appearing on TV/Radio and across the press nationally and locally… as well as running my own magazine and courses.
And now my heart is in coaching YOU!
