Every day we witness life-changing events, whether social, political or scientific. What makes these moments most memorable are the human stories that bring them to life. As a former research scientist and Head of PR and Communications in the charity sector, I have worked with teams to bring complex research to life and help organisations to convey the value of their work with passion.

At Alzheimer’s Research UK, I oversaw communications for the Dementia Revolution, the most successful London Marathon charity partnership to date, as well as developing the case for support for the charity and its most groundbreaking research programmes.

Sir Terry Pratchett, one of the Alzheimer’s Research UK’s most generous donors, once said: ‘The best research you can do is to talk to people’. I look forward to working together to understand your needs, listen to your stakeholders and capture the hearts and minds of your donors.
