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

I got my start at The Daily Telegraph in 2006, 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, Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, The Observer, The Sun,  and The Radio Times.

For the last five years, I have written Bargain Hunter, a weekly moneysaving column for The Metro.

I also regularly broadcast on national television and radio programmes such as BBC News, Radio 4, Times Radio and BBC Radio 5 Live. 

I do editorial consulting for major brands, social media collaborations and copywriting for 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.

My second book, published by Headline Publishing, is due to be published Spring 2023.


Whether you’re rolling in the dough or living in the red, I will never tell you that you shouldn’t be spending your money – after all, you’ve worked hard for it – but my goal is to create content that will help you spend it more cleverly so you feel more confident and empowered about your finances.

The last few years have been hard on every household, but I’m here to help you claw your way back from the financial uncertainty that the cost-of-living crisis has created so that you can feel back on track.

Because, let’s face it, money may not buy you happiness, but it sure can buy you a few things that will make you feel a bit more secure.


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