Hi, I'm the Editor of money.co.uk, which means I oversee everything from the data in our comparison tables to the Deals, Guides and Action Plans you see on the website. I also put together our twice weekly money saving newsletter, so I have plenty to keep me busy.
My financial education started after university when I got a job in a building society; before this I'd been more than a little throwaway with money (despite my parents' best efforts to teach me otherwise)!
Seeing how many people didn't know how to make the most of the money they had (both those with lots of it, and those with not enough) made me realise that I needed to get a grip on my spending and learn how to make my finances work for me.
This lesson, along with the solid grounding I gained in all things financial is so important in what I do now . As the focus of my job is giving people the tools and information they need to make smart money choices.
I feel really privileged to be in a position where I get to help people make informed decisions about their finances, as with money it's so often the little things that make a big difference.
Of course, I'm also one of the first to hear about the best new financial products and money saving deals out there. While this is fantastic for the household finances, the downside is that I have to continually fight the urge to spend - something which seems to come as second nature to me.
I'm not a fan of sitting still so I fill my spare time with kickboxing, yoga, dance classes and (to compensate) baking. I'm also part of the money.co.uk running club (an idea conceived on a money.co.uk night out, of course!).
