Welcome to the Women In Print UK group
Before moving into print I had no idea how intricate and detailed the process was. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning everything that’s entailed in producing a high-quality product.
I started working in the print industry when I was 16. I have worked in varied roles from editorial and business admin to despatch, but settled in marketing in 2007 as I absolutely love being a marketer!
I have been around print for as long as I can remember, starting when my parents turned our garage into a print shop when I was around 5 years old. That garage print outfit turned into £2 million book printing company over the years and paved the way for me to become the MD of an even larger, growing print business.
I am the editorial director and publisher at Earth Island Publishing. I have worked as a journalist, writer, and editor across a variety of printed and online media including newspapers and magazines, both nationally and internationally, and have specialised in magazines, initiatives, and events for the graphic arts for more than 20 years.
