After working in the retail industry since graduating from Nottingham Trent University, I was always keen to move into journalism and after setting up an online football blogging website, I soon had the confidence to pursue a career in journalism. I completed my NCTJ Sports Journalism course in 2016 and secured my first journalism job at a weekly newspaper based in Congleton in August 2017, where I worked for two and a half years before embarking on a new venture with Nub News. Having worked in Congleton for nearly three years I have a good knowledge of the town and the community. In my spare time I enjoy watching sport and spending time with my friends, family and visiting new places.
