After pitching and writing a health feature for LADbible, I've been a regular news writer for the website and a frequent contributor of sponsored content. In March 2018, the title asked me to conduct an interview on the topic of domestic abuse with Home Secretary, Amber Rudd.  

I am also a regular news, features and round-up writer for The Independent travel desk, covering everything from airline news to hotel openings and travel trends.
