From my earliest memories, books and words have always been my dearest friends. Perfectly crafted sentences, a well-turned phrase, the images brought to life of times gone by or future worlds yet to be – all of these brought me endless delight and contentment. This carried through to university, where I studied English Literature and Theatre, completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in each subject while graduating at the top of my class. I went on to train in the trade of editorial field in the children’s publishing industry. Becoming a part of the world of making children’s books was a dream come true and I cherish those days and the many books that were put on the shelves as a part of my endeavours. After marrying and moving to Scotland, I moved into another type of editorial work in the medical devices world, operating in a highly regulated environment, ensuring the high quality standards of regulatory requirements and customer care as well as excellent grammar were being met.

I am delighted to now bring my breadth of experience to the individuals, local businesses and students of the Highlands.
