Luisa became a recognisable face and name on BBC News due to her confidence, poise and ability to simplify complex stories. This led to her reporting on high-profile global news stories such as the Amanda Knox trials in Italy and Papal events at the Vatican City, to the 7/7 bombings in London. As Deputy Royal Correspondent she covered the likes of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, The Duchess of Cambridge’s first solo Royal engagements and the birth of Prince George.
In 2014, Luisa moved to New York for three years where as well as co-founding Composure Media, she worked as a coach for Vermilion Talent, a women’s career re-entry organisation for whom she still provides remote coaching from the UK. Luisa has also contributed as a coach to Cambridge Judge Business School’s “Accelerate” and “Ignite” entrepreneurial programmes. Before working at the BBC, Luisa worked at ITN for both ITV and Channel 5 News and previously lived in Lyon, France working for EuroNews.
Luisa was born and brought up in Africa and is half British, half Italian. She lives in Oxfordshire, in the UK.
