I’m Heather and I can’t wait to get to know you better.
To cut the long story short:
I'm a copywriter and content writer for ethical wellness brands
You’ll find my features in print magazines in the UK and beyond
I’m an MA English Literature graduate and a lifelong word nerd
I’m passionate about conscious consumerism
I'm currently living in Bali, Indonesia!

Three things collided to create this little corner of the internet: a passion for wellness, concern for the environment, and a deep love for the written word.
Let’s start with the last on the list. You know how they say every person is a maths or an English person? I was always the latter. All I wanted to do at school was read books and write stories. I went to university to study English and thought, hey, I'm pretty good at this. I finished with a first-class degree and three awards, including the best grades in my year, and have since achieved a Distinction in my master’s degree (humble brag).
My passion for the written word, however, goes well beyond the realms of academia. I'm a lifelong word nerd and have never stopped studying and taking courses, including training with The Comprehensive Copywriting Academy.
My interest in wellness and self-development grew whilst I was at university too. In my first year, I was shy and stressed, and by my fourth year, I was calm and confident. It largely boiled down to a mindset shift: putting my health and happiness on top of my to-do list every day.
I went vegan, formed a fitness routine, meditation, therapy, yoga, journaling – you name it, I did (still do) it. As well as becoming a complete cliché, I started a part-time job as a Faculty Wellbeing Ambassador as I wanted to share the profound effect these changes had on me.
Another mindset shift happened in the summer of 2018 when I embarked on my first volunteering experience in Kefalonia, Greece. I booked it because I had itchy feet and had watched Mamma Mia one too many times. I left with a new outlook.
The project was saving the turtles (or marine conservation if we’re getting technical) and seeing first-hand the effect humans have on the planet terrified me. Another couple of volunteering trips and a whole load of documentaries later, caring for the planet is something I always try to do.
Now let’s skip to the good bit. I have been freelance writing since the start of the Pandemi Lavato, during my postgraduate degree, and now whilst I travel and live in South East Asia!
