I've been a journalist for 20 years and currently focus on the business and finance, management and IT sectors.

I started my career on a monthly IT magazine for finance directors/CFOs called Computers & Finance. In 1998 I moved to Computing where I edited the skills section of the magazine and focused on careers and skills issues for IT professionals. I was also a champion for the women in IT cause. I subsequently was appointed management editor across technology titles published by VNU including Computing, IT Week, CRN and Computeractive.

I made the move into financial journalism in January 2004 as features editor of Accountancy Age. I spent six years on the title, latterly working as digital programmes editor, responsible for sourcing content and spokespeople for webseminars, podcasts and Accountancy Age TV, and hosting web events.

I love turning subjects deemed "dull" by the masses into entertaining and authoritative pieces. I have been shortlisted twice for the MCA/Management Today management writing awards, and in 2005 was awarded a Gold Award from US body TABPI (Trade, Association and Business Publications International).

Over the years I have forged great contacts with those at the highest echelons of business, and profiled C-level executives at some of the UK's biggest corporations. My main areas of interest are accountancy regulation, financial reporting, corporate governance, management issues, skills and career development, technology and sustainable business.

I write regularly across the accountancy press, including Accountancy, Accountancy Age, Accounting & Business, economia, Public Finance and The CA. I also keep my hand in on technology issues as a contributor to Computing, The Register and other IT titles as well as writing about technology for the accountancy press.

I am also co-founder of a website all about the trials and tribulations of feeding children. www.MealsOurKidsLove.com features recipes, features, interviews and news to help parents, grandparents and anyone else who faces that task - with the aim of making it just that little bit easier.

I have a degree in French and German with European Studies from Bath University. Outside of work, I'm a part time sheep farmer, lapsed musician (flute and piano, alumni of the Royal Collage of Music junior department), novice knitter and mother of three children.
