of occasion, grit and a touch of wit.
As a corporate communications and public relations professional her hallmarks are discretion,

Most recently her career has seen her focus on writing long form features and op eds focusing
on social justice and diversity and inclusion in the UK, where she has made her home.

whipping up a sumptuous curry for friends, where the rum and laughter flow freely.
