Hey! I’m Simone
Like most people who end up in the ‘self employed’, ‘freelance’, ‘I want to try it my way’ world. It’s taken a few plot twists, risky moves and failed attempts for me to get here, writing this about me page.
It’s hard to know how much of yourself to leave on an about me page so I’ve decided to break it down into what you need to know about me, what you should know and what you might like to know.
Things you need to know about me:
I am a content writer. My skills and interests put me in the perfect position to add value to your work for your community. There’s nothing I love more than crafting blogs or creating resources to help people learn and encourage them to take steps to be a healthier and happier individual.
I have a degree in Mental Health Nursing and continue to have an active registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
I advocate for trustworthy, ethical and evidence based information. This works both ways for our working relationship. I want to make sure that your message, values and goals align with my professional and personal beliefs. For you, I want you to know that when we work together what is created has been researched, is ethical and shares reliable advice or information.
Things you should know about me:
I have a passion for mental health and the mind. Have you ever heard that there are more potential connections in your brain than there are stars in the sky? How mind blowing is that?! That’s an immeasurable amount of potential that each of us hold in that gap between our ears.
Where some people get stuck down rabbit holes of cat videos on youtube, I get caught up with mental health material.
One of my biggest interests is the connection between movement, nature and mental health and how this all interlinks with wider health and wellbeing.
Writing isn’t my only job. Part of my week is spent working on progression and development within health and social care. This means I also have a unique understanding if you’re working with staff wellbeing, social care or wellness for people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health conditions.
Things you might like to know
I’m a triathlete (I use this word loosely). Triathlon came into my life a few years ago and I haven’t looked back since. You can read more about this on my blog or watch me in an attempt to get fitter and stronger over on my instagram.
I love being outdoors. If I’m not training or working you can pretty much guarantee I’ll be in the sea, in a forest, on a paddle board or up a mountain.
If I could live solely on pizza and red wine…I would. I would even consider it as a form of payment (you’ll have to get in touch to find out if I’m joking about that).
Where you can see some of my work
Like many other content writers, a lot of my work can be under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), ghost written or white labelled. One of the best ways to see how I write is to check out my blog page or you can see a few of my published work below:
