Julie is commissioning editor for Pioneers Post. A highly experienced editor and writer, she is passionate about using her communication skills to help others get their messages across vibrantly and accurately.
Julie trained as a magazine journalist at Cardiff University, following a degree in social and cultural studies from Nottingham University. She works on projects which do good - recently she's edited a book for foster carers and contributed to a publication for GPs to inspire positive changes in the health service. Her clients include not only social enterprises and charities but also private companies and government departments whose work is embedded in positive social values.
She lives in a small off-grid house on a hillside in Catalunya, working on equipment which is mostly powered by the sun and the wind.
