Managing editor/Sub editor/Co-editor
Having completed my degree in Communications and Information Studies I left the bright lights of London for the middle earth of Oxfordshire.
Over the next five years I worked in the marketing departments of an internet service provider and infrastructure services organisation and through a number of acquisitions and takeovers I learnt the power of effective communication.
None of this prepared me for my biggest challenge, that of motherhood. I’ve devoted three years of my life to the care of my energetic daughter, but now, as she settles into her school life, it’s time for me to return to mine.
Writing has been a growing passion for me as through work and play I have gained experience with both online and print media.
I see being a part of WVoN as a way to support a cause that I have long felt strongly about whilst developing my skills. I’ve worked in two different, very male dominated industries. I’ve seen first-hand the insidious inequalities imbedded in our society.
Looking outside of my life and my country I can see that those inequalities are deeper and stronger elsewhere. I want to work towards a world where gender differences are something to celebrate rather than a justification for prejudice.
I have long believed that the internet is a tool we can use to make the world a truly better place and it’s time I became a part of that.
