The former Greenhead High School girl began her journalism career in 1978. After working for newspapers in Liverpool, Newcastle and Barnsley (with a year out grape-picking and metal dipping in Germany somewhere in between), she studied photography and then travelled the globe for 22 years as a freelance travel photographer working for books, brochures and magazines. Her rucksack finally wore out and she joined the Examiner in January 2011, covering news, education and golf.
