SUMMARY

My experience encompasses written communications in journalism, marketing, business development and public relations. I began my career as a journalist, ultimately working as the Editor and Online Editor of a national lifestyle bi-monthly magazine and website. Since then I have worked in contract or freelance roles, while also pursuing personal creative arts and fiction-writing projects. Most recently, I worked on a business development project for BVN Donovan Hill, undertaking a role as Content Editor. This role involved a complete review of all business development assets and the development of new written marketing and public relations materials, including project sheets, essays and articles for industry magazines, corporate profiling for online and print as well as tender writing for submissions. Since then, I have been engaged in my favourite role to date – as a parent to an 12 month old. I have a broad skill set that encompasses writing for multiple disciplines and audiences, editing, web design, content management, social media management and graphic design.
