I'm a mother, producer, director and television host who doesn’t see the difference between life and work because I love them both. I'm probably best known for my work on UK national television, as a prime-time host (presenter) of such flagship series as the BBC‘s Watchdog, Holiday, UK’s Worst…?, Newsroom Southeast, Wide World (Channel 5), and on, BBC Radio 2 and Choice FM (Global Radio).
As an anchor in the BBC’s News and Current Affairs Department, I helped achieve mainstream figures, averaging 6 million viewers for a specialist series; was voted “extremely popular” in a UK nationwide BBC poll; received a coveted UK Media Award, as well as mention in countless publications.
My proudest interviews are spiritual leader Deepak Chopra and accidental hero Doreen Lawrence – mother of slain teenager, Stephen Lawrence – who singlehandedly changed the face of British justice. Both are personal heroes of mine who are making a difference.
