About

Just like you…but probably with more drugs.

I am a 20-something woman living in London who works as a strategist in the advertising industry, and just happens to have a life-shortening lung condition called Cystic Fibrosis. These two facts do sometimes coincide.

Under Professional Sick Girl, I write to raise awareness of what it’s like to pursue a demanding career with a lifelong illness. To illustrate some of the challenges people with CF live with on a daily basis, and do my best to make them relatable to others. I may even try to make you laugh along the way.

I also write about advertising and sustainability. You can find these posts under Ad Talk and Sustainability. Previously I have written for industry publications including Creative Social and Future Rising.

  1. I love that you are doing this, Ellie. I want to say ‘go girl’ but am probably 30 years too old, so please just accept the sentiment.
