Published writer and experienced researcher
I have 30 years’ business experience as a researcher, including being a founding partner of a research company, and a freelance consultant. I am based in Northumberland but available for the whole of the North East. My entrepreneurial spirit is captured within the creation of this Life Memories venture, as it combines my natural fascination of people with my desire to preserve people’s own history.
I'm a friendly, confident, well organised professional, who approaches each project with the dedication and attention to detail expected by my clients.
My expertise is delivering excellent interviewing and analysis skills, writing with flair and accuracy. I have crafted the art of using open and closed questions which encourages interviewees to feel relaxed and comfortable in sharing their thoughts, opinions and experiences.
I have been a Dementia Adviser for a major charity providing first-hand experience of working with people with dementia and their loved ones. My empathetic, caring nature establishes rapport with people quickly and easily, ensuring the process is both productive and enjoyable. I have an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate providing reassurance of completed Police Checks, vital for those who are vulnerable.
