I've spent the last 15+ years helping brands of all shapes and sizes propel their profile through the power of PR.
From managing high profile campaigns for UK government departments, promoting pioneering research for a prestigious University, to launching product & services for independent brands, I have acquired a vast amount of experience in almost all industry sectors.
But the summer of 2019 saw a major turning point for me.
I was on a short career break after becoming a mum for the first time & uprooting our home from the West Midlands to Leicestershire.
Whilst I should have been happy being a lady of leisure, something didn't feel right...
It was at that point that I realised I'd lost something that meant a great deal to me - I'd lost my identity.
I'd happily traded in my career for 'mum life', not realising that there was a way you could have it all...
So at the end of 2019, I set up Hawthorn House, initially as a support service for PR agencies - and later working with SME's directly.

I love working with brands that give people that 'feel good' factor or make the world a better place in some way.
But even more than that, I love working with nice people.
