Writing + Editing

I am a storyteller. I write with energy, compassion and integrity.

IN 2019 I completed my Bachelor of Arts (Professional and Creative Writing) with Distinction, and have sense gained invaluable industry experience as a writer and editor.

From November 2019 to July 2020, I worked as a journalist for regional newspaper, The Hamilton Spectator. Here, I specialised in rural features and agricultural news.

In August, I teamed up with Rural Women’s Day Founder, Jackie Elliott to develop a special keepsake magazine in lieu of the annual event for International Day of Rural Women on October 15. Alongside my role as Editor, I also wrote a number of articles for the publication.
