I founded Papyrus Research in 2010 having spent ten years in qualitative market research. I have a real love for researching and writing about interesting subjects, and have spent my working life writing about everything from competitive intelligence through to reproductive technology. Over the course of my career I have carried out depth interviews with hundreds of professional respondents including general counsel, MPs and CEOs, and I enjoy bringing their ideas to life in research reports and case studies.
I began my career with a London research agency writing market analysis reports for a blue-chip, global IT company. Since then I have provided full service research and account management for clients in professional services, manufacturing, IT and the public sector. As part of this my work has always included a strong element of writing, editing and proofreading corporate reports and other documents, but in recent years I have written two books, ghost written several more, and edited more than twenty.
I have a CertHE in Equine Science, a first class degree in English Literature, a commendation Postgraduate Diploma in Law and a distinction Masters in Modern and Contemporary Studies. I have completed the Publishing Training Centre’s Basic Proofreading by Distance Learning course, and have been trained as an interviewer by the Market Research Society and the Association for Qualitative Research.
In my spare time I love to read, bake cakes and frequent the glorious National Trust properties of North East England with my husband and children Grace, Gabriel and Iris. The arrival of our youngest child, who goes by the moniker Iris Papyrus, was the catalyst for establishing a career as a freelance writer and researcher – so the company was named in her honour.
