I am currently an Assistant News Editor at ITV News.

Prior to this, I was a freelance journalist for BBC Radio Nottingham and BBC Radio Lincolnshire.

This summer, I graduated from the University of Nottingham with a first class Politics and American Studies degree.

I have worked for BBC Politics East Midlands, Channel 4 News, Metro UK, Dalesman Magazine and more.

Aside from journalism, I have a keen interest in history, culture and women's rights. I love traveling and watching documentaries.
