Lucy has taught in boutique London gyms and is currently a strength instructor at the Oxford Circus branch of Psycle in London.

Lucy earned a NCTJ-accredited BA (Hons) in Print Journalism from Nottingham Trent University and, after a series of internships at Cosmopolitan Australia, Now UK and Nuts, landed her first role at Now magazine in 2013.
