Blog

This is a space where I’ll reflect weekly on my working life as well a place for more personal observations about the things that matter most to me. There’s likely to be a lot of overlap, but as they say, you’ll never work a day in your life if you love what you do.

Please note that while some of the content will relate to my work, all opinions expressed are entirely my own and not reflective of the organisation/s with whom I currently work or work for.

Dear Senedd Candidates

An open Letter to Senedd 2021 Candidates. You can help make this an election of kindness, fairness, and cooperation; or you can deliver more of the same and widen the divide that threatens us all.

Living Your Best Life

To ‘Live Your Best Life’ is to recognise that good health and well-being, paired with identity and a sense of belonging can encourage us all to live the healthiest, happiest life we can.

As LGBT+ people we go on a journey of self-discovery, that in the best-case results in us being able to accept ourselves and love who we are.

A part of loving who we are is allowing ourselves to be the healthiest and happiest we can be. That means taking care of our physical, social and mental well-being.

Obesity: Weighing up the options

We know that solving the obesity crisis isn’t as simple as encouraging families to ban fatty foods and start exercising more- if it were that easy we’d all be ‘beach body ready’ (terrible concept) down in Barrybados building sand castles and topping up our tans.

From IndyCurious to IndyFurious

Why this crisis has taken me from IndyCurious to IndyFurious and why, for me, an independent Wales creates a more optimistic view of the future.

Week Notes #8&9

Well another two weeks have crawled by and a bank holiday weekend has disappeared in the blink of an eye. Find out what I’ve been up to in that time and why I’m optimistic about a post COVID-19 Wales.

Weeknotes #6&7

It’s been a turbulent two weeks but after all of the disturbance I feel like I’m now getting into the new routine which means the return of week notes! Find out what I’ve been up to…

#KnowTheFacts

Stop, Think, Share… why we all need to hit pause before we post, especially when it comes to COVID-19.

Week Notes #5

It’s been another busy week in public health comms with visitors from Finland, Novel Coronavirus support and lots of thinking about the importance of sustainability and legacy in the content we create.

Week Notes #4

Well it’s been an inspiring week. Tiring, intense and extremely busy…. but inspiring! From SHARP and COVID19, to History month and breasts, I’ve learnt a lot.

Week Notes #3

It’s been another great week in the world of comms with an impromptu bus journey to Cwmbran, a very exciting skype call with Sweden and a whole lot of planning and preparation for the SHARP joint action.

Week Notes #2

So, my prediction that I’d have a lot more to write about this week certainly came true; it’s been a week of firsts, a week of learning and most importantly a week of fun!
