Fiona has been a volunteer with Hope FM for over 8 years, she has worked as a freelance artist, in press media and has a Masters Degree in Writing for the Media (Screenwriting). Fiona's first started with Hope FM by producing a series called Everyday People. She moved on to co-present the breakfast show with Blair Crawford and then launched the Community Matters programme. She currently hosts Monday's Good Afternoon show.
Fiona says: "I’m a creative and a communicator, always making something or another. Media is a palette to create pictures, so I paint with sound in radio, with written words in print or for the screen and when I’m not playing with words, then it could be watercolours, oils or clay." She adds: "I enjoy the challenge of radio and have had the opportunity to interview people from all walks of life. Radio is a unique media it opens conversations and ideas in a way that gets along side people. Community radio is such a great way to be able to acknowledge and share people's stories, because everyone has a story to tell."
Fiona has danced a highland fling in Paris with a French trained astronaut, she eats Weetabix with butter and Marmite and likes to have shoes for every occasion!
