Writing for Contented simply makes sense for me. I reconnected with Harriette years after having worked for her in (what feels like) a former life of what I can only describe as "hurried living" in London.
Several career add-ons, three young children and an international move to Dubai have definitely blurred the lines between working, parenting, living and everything in between. I’m grateful I get to unleash my creativity with Contented, without compromising on the other things that matter, too.
A multi-hyphenate professional long before the term became a millennial mainstay, I’ve been penning copy for 15 years for magazines, agencies, brands and book publishers. Career highs evolved from seeing my name on features in Women’s Health magazine in 2011, to heading up a content reformation for Sweaty Betty, to getting my first book deal in 2019. Since 2015 I’ve also worked as a personal trainer and fitness coach, specialising in women’s fitness and perinatal exercise especially. For me, movement and words have always been the two most powerful ways to contribute meaning to the world around me.
Most of my content projects fall within the lifestyle, wellness and retail sectors. From quick and quirky ecommerce copy to evidence-driven editorial that educates and inspires readers, I can adapt to the tone of most briefs as quickly as I can jump from my laptop to the gym to the playground and back again.
