I began my career racing cars at 17, and shortly after leaving university was approached by Channel 4 to host all of their UK motorsports, which at the time included Formula 3 and British GT. This led on to a career of almost 20 years of motor racing broadcasting where I worked for BBC, ITV, Sky and international broadcasters in the US, Asia and Africa. In parallel I was still racing and when I hung up my helmet in 2008, I was racing GT and Sports Prototypes, and was the only British female driver to have competed in the top LMP1 category in the famous Le Mans 24 hours.
At this point I began working for car manufacturers (OEMs including Nissan, Mercedes and Jaguar Land Rover) and a brand ambassador and spokesperson. I was the Confused.com motoring editor for 4 years where we campaigned for the rights of motorists, made sense of law and commented on government policy.
More recently with JLR, I have been supporting Jaguar's participation in the pioneering all electric single seater racing series - Formula E. I am also the Sustainable Transport Editor for Centrica, a role that covers not only electric vehicles and charging infrastructure, but also the customers entire home and mobility energy profile as we move towards an electric future.
I live in Oxford with my two teenage children who don't appreciate me, and my two Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs who do.
