I started my career as a news reporter on local newspapers - I was great at sourcing real-life stories as well as covering local politics. I became a financial journalist after a former contact thought my investigative skills could be put to good use in the light of the pension scandal. Since then I've continued to work as a personal finance journalist but have ventured into women's magazine writing, authored a couple of books and helped pioneer web journalism.
