Helen joined Moneywise as deputy editor in December 2015. Prior to this, she worked at MoneySavingExpert.com for five years where she started out as a news reporter before working her way up to a senior reporter role.
An NCTJ qualified journalist with a degree in Multimedia Journalism, Helen won the Online Journalist of the Year title at the Santander Media Awards 2013.
Helen has also been a consumer representative on the Air Travel Insolvency Protection Advisory Committee (ATIPAC) since November 2014 due to her work on travel issues – in particular on flight delay and cancellation compensation rights.
Working for two consumer behemoths has resulted in Helen living and breathing the money saving way of life; from mystery dining to get free meals out, regularly switching to nab the best telecoms, energy, and current account deals, and of course, always bringing in her trusty (and cheap) packed lunch.
