As well as blogging, I make my living as as a personal finance journalist.

I got my start at The Daily Telegraph, where I spent eight years on the money desk. After my daughter was born in 2013, I went freelance.

Since taking the leap to leave my office job, I have written for a number of national newspapers and magazines such as  The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Observer, The Sun, Saga Magazine, The Radio Times, Reveal and Moneywise Magazine. 

I also write the weekly Bargain Hunter page in The Metro, which is published on Wednesdays.

In addition, I do some corporate work and copywriting for brands in the finance, parenting and retail sectors.

My first book, Your Best Friend’s Guide to Cash: Eight Things Every Woman Needs to Know About Money, was published by Harriman House in December 2014.

Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada, I live with my husband and daughter in West Sussex.
