Tell us about your career path so far
I went to UCLAN University and got my bachelors in journalism but I decided that I didn't want to pursue this as a career. I then worked in Debenhams for 3 years in a senior position however the store closed down. I then worked at Costa as a Barista Maestro and I worked there for 2 years. Whilst working at Costa, I obtained a masters in the Beatles music industry heritage - it was here where I was encouraged to write more and it encouraged me to get into a writing career. I then found the job at Spencer Clarke Group and I haven't looked back since!
