Writing

I’m an experienced journalist and content marketing writer, specialising in Education, Health and Lifestyle stories. Twelve years in news journalism means I can write pretty much anything. 

As a television producer and reporter, I researched, wrote and sub-edited news stories and current affairs features for a range of programmes.

Since leaving TV, my writing repertoire has expanded to include digital and content marketing: blog posts, newsletters, media releases, annual reports, websites and social media posts. 

As marketing and communications manager for a private school, I produced a variety of original content, photos and videos. I have ghostwritten speeches and articles for the school’s executive team and developed the school’s crisis communications during the Covid-19 pandemic.

I am also an experienced blogger, specialising in communications. I have a newsletter for subscribers and a consistent social media presence on Linked In, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

I wrote dozens of articles and blog posts for Helena College, many of which made it into the local papers. NASA Intern is about a school graduate who was invited to work at NASA. The blog post and media release led to a newspaper story that showcased the school’s value to a wider audience.
