Catriona is a journalist, specialising in longform investigative and first-person pieces spanning a range of subjects with a particular interest in addiction, women’s rights and grief. She’s currently Senior Editor at Cosmopolitan, the UK’s bestselling women’s magazine, where she commissions, edits and writes the features, health and books section. She’s recently been named Best Print Writer, by BSME and prior to Cosmopolitan was Deputy Features and Entertainment Writer at LOOK Magazine.
In her time there she has worked in the Playboy club, to find out how it feels to be a plus-size Bunny on the floor, wrote and performed a stand-up comedy set in 24 hours to get over her fear of public speaking, secured the first interview with Bethany Haines who lost her father to Isis and delved into her own family history to discuss what it’s like when your dad is transgender.
Originally from Edinburgh, she now lives in the outskirts of London with her husband and cat. She spends her time trying to persuade her friends to move closer to her (a full-time job in itself).
