  • Graduated from Portsmouth University in 1981 with a BA (Hons) degree in Geography.

  • 8 months maternity cover at The Automobile Association 2011 - 2012 as senior cartographic editor responsible for several titles in their world travel guide series, as well as assisting on road atlas publications and hotel guides.

  • Since 1990 I have continued to work on a freelance basis on a wide variety of projects including several dual and multi-language editions and have recently been involved in the creation of a new large scale world map database. Clients have included: Lovell Johns Ltd, Macmillan Publishers Ltd, The AA, Dorling Kindersley, Parragon Books, Oxford University Press, Collins Bartholomew and The Future Mapping Company.
