DOSE Writers

Hettie Holmes @hettie.holmes

Hettie is the editor and co-founder of DOSE. A keen runner, she’s also partial to a blast of high-intensity and hot yoga. A country girl at heart, she divides her time between London and the lush rolling hills of North Devon. When she’s not jetting off on her next adventure, Hettie can be found in a candle-lit alcove with a laptop, a spaniel and a full bodied Malbec.

Sam Lewis @samlewis400

Since catching the travel bug, Sam’s feet have barely touched the ground. Her job at MailOnline allowed her to travel all over the world and most recently saw her spend a year in Australia. Now back in London and working as a freelance journalist, Sam already has itchy feet and her next stop will take her to India to train as a yoga instructor. Other things to know about Sam: she’s addicted to Acai bowls, could’t live without coffee and her favourite music to workout to is old school garage.

Charlotte Dormon @healthyeatslondon

Charlotte has been working as an expert in the world of wellness for over 18 years. She loves long walks, alfresco dining, Pilates to stay in shape, rock concerts and lots of chocolate vegan ice cream. She admits to being a self-confessed vitamin junkie and spends far too much money on the latest pills that promise to help you look and feel more youthful. She’s also a great person to know if you want to seek out the healthiest places to eat, drink and hangout in town.

Charlotte Pasha – @charlottepasha

Charlotte is a London girl through and through. She sweats through spin and puffs through Pilates to justify trying the latest restaurants and devouring copious amounts of sweet potato fries, burrata and bread – preferably on holiday. Her favourite destinations include Italy, the Maldives and anywhere where the sun’s shining and there’s a strong breakfast buffet. She’s obsessed with walking, visiting farmers’ markets and reading. She’s also learning to cook. Wish her (and her husband) luck.

Sophie Everard @sophiemadtolive

Sophie Everard has been a journalist chronicling all that is sport, travel and adventure for over 10 years, and is the published author of a book on snowboarding. A bonafide lover of all that is action and adventure, Sophie is also the founder of Mad To Live Retreats, global women’s adventure & fitness trips, is a diehard sport fiend and loves to get down and sweaty in London gyms when not on the road.

Lucy Sambrook – @lucysambrook

Lucy is a self-confessed fitness class junkie and can be found trying out everything from surf-board yoga to expressive dance via aerial hoop or weight lifting. An ex-journalist for Metro, she now works in creative and PR for a group of London music venues, which fulfils her hedonist tendencies and love of a dance floor. As well as embracing all the fun that London has to offer, she is equally at home climbing a mountain or surfing in the Cornish sea. She likes to balance out play with wellness, is obsessed with Poké, sunny holiday retreats, perfecting the perfect headstand and leopard print active wear.

Rosie Sargeant @sargeypie

After graduating from Cambridge University with a triple First, Rosie decided to pursue a career in the fitness industry rather than follow the traditional path of her peers in investment banking. Unable to shake off the fast-paced routine she developed in her City job, she achieves balance by winding down in yoga sessions, escaping on fitness retreats, and going for extended brunches that somehow seem to wind up in a hidden gem of a cocktail bar.


Shara Tochia @sharatochia

Spin instructor by morning, co-founder of DOSE by day. Shara’s fitness favourites include a sweaty yoga class, reformer pilates, HIIT and spinning of course. Her Spotify list includes nothing but tracks you can spin to. She doesn’t go a day without eggs and avocado and travel is always on her mind! Dreams of Malbec and vodka cocktails.

Siobhan Gunner @hotspothunter

A city girl with a sweet tooth, Siobhan is a freelance journalist and social media strategist who creates content around food and travel. From living in New York to Amsterdam and now finally finding her feet in London, she spends her weekends searching for new desserts and tucked-away breakfast spots, capturing it all on her blog Hotspot Hunter. Mornings often start with sweetcorn fritters or a veggie bowl, afternoons are all about cakes and cookies, while evenings are fuelled by JOMO – don’t ask her out for drinks, just fill her cup with cookie dough instead.
