She has performed with orchestras including the English National Ballet Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra. Since moving to Knebworth, Hattie has been the principle flute with the St Albans' Symphony Orchestra.

Hattie has performed a soloist with various ensembles and conductors, including John Gibbons and the Locrian Ensemble, in venues such as St Albans' Abbey and St Martin-in-the-Fields. Hattie has also performed as a regular deputy for the flute chair in the West End Shows Mary Poppins and The Far Pavilions, where she also used her recorder and ethnic flute talents!

Together with London Flutes, an ensemble for four flutes, Hattie performed and comissioned contemporary flute music.

She is an experienced flute tutor, and for many years taught on the annual flute summer school A Breath of Fresh Air, run by the prestigious flautist Anna Noakes. She has also taken masterclasses at Trinity College of Music, where she studied extensively on a scholarship.

She also owns an Oston Brannen flute, together with a piccolo by Anton Braun and a Sankyo alto flute. An avid collector of flutes of all kinds, Hattie also owns (and plays!) Moeck recorders of all sizes, Indian bansuri, Chinese membrane flutes, various panpipes and tin whistles (including a number of Chieftains) and a gorgeous cocobolo wood whistle by the wonderful Simon Styles of Weston Whistles.
