About Me

My Work

In 2018, I quit my 12 year career as a Medical Librarian in the Nursing and Midwifery sector, to pursue working from home as a Freelance Writer, Journalist, Content Creator and general dogsbody to our two kids. I also do freelance editing and ghostwriting.

I am a writer by nature, a graphic designer by chance, an all round sci-fi nerd and lover of robots and steampunk. I am not ashamed to admit I grew up reading the dictionary and thesaurus to indulge in my love of words. 

I write for a variety of magazines, newspapers and websites including The Irish Times, Irish Examiner, Easy Parenting, Mums & Tots, and more. Based on my published articles, I have contributed to radio interviews and I have sat on the couch on Ireland: AM. 

I have contributed to the Motherboard Podcast from Packed.House and the Real Mums Real Talk Podcast from the Rotunda Hospital and have sat on panel discussions about motherhood and mental health. I openly share my own journey with Postnatal Depression and Anxiety.

In a former life, my blog and social media handles all went by the name of Over Heaven's Hill.
