I am a freelance writer and educator with a passion for learning. 

After graduating from St Andrews University, I spent ten years in the Department of Employment in various roles including field work and policy development, achieving professional qualifications in management and purchasing.  I then retrained as a teacher of History and continue to teach part time as well as being an educator for the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Lessons from Auschwitz project. 

I love Rwanda, a country that has taught me so much about life and myself.  I support Survivors Fund (SURF), a charity that works with partner organisations to help survivors of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi build sustainable lives and receive the counselling and support they need to do so.

My aim in writing is to share my stories and poetry reflecting my experiences and research. 

I enjoy reading, walking, learning new things and spending time with family and friends eating good food.  I am happy to call the beautiful city of Edinburgh home.
