As Brand Director of Harper Collins publishing and responsible for New Release, and Brand Marketing for some of the UK’s most popular Children’s authors: David Walliams, Michael Mopurgo, Oliver Jeffers, Lauren Child amongst many others. As a mother of 3 young children as well, Nicola’s life was high pressured in every possible way. So when she felt unwell for an extended period of time she put it down to work stress. It was only after nine months of trying every alternative therapy and healthy eating plan that she admitted defeat and took the extreme step to resign from her high profile position. What happened next changed the course of her career path in a way she’s still coming to terms with today.
