Julie Palmer

I am senior editor for Herts & Essex News and Media and a mum of two. I started as a reporter in Nottinghamshire before spending 25 years on newspapers in the North-east. I moved to Hertfordshire in 2010. I first became aware of Stephanie Knight in a professional capacity as I published stories about her fight with cancer. Having a daughter of a similar age brought Steph’s story  close to home.

Since Steph’s sad passing, I have got to know her amazing family and know how important it is for them to keep Steph’s name alive with the charity she set up. And I am happy to be able to play a small part in that.
