What I do best

Oh, hi there! Thanks for stopping by my profile to see if we'd work well together. Please allow me to introduce myself!

As an experienced writer (storyteller, journalist, copywriter, content creator) and communications professional with 20+ years’ experience, I am passionate about words, writing and communicating. I have worked with diverse organisations ranging from local councils to small business, and love bringing my quirky sense of humour, my values-based attitude and my passion for words to my work.

I have great interpersonal skills that allow me to tease out the story behind the story, and my friendly, approachable nature allows me to forge strong professional relationships with the people I work with. I love a good "mum joke" and lattes, and I've been known to bring home-made cake to the office.

I have worked with local and state governments, small and medium business, events and festivals, and not-for-profits, and I love helping organisations tell their stories in an authentic yet straight-to-the-point manner.

In my spare time, I'm a reader, a gardener, a home cook, a knitter and a singer, and I love telling stories to anyone who will listen. I love a chat!

I specialise in:
• Writing engaging copy that gets organisation the attention they deserve.
• Plain English writing that cuts through.
• Telling stories about people and organisations.
• Creating stand-out content that weaves in values and tells personal stories.
• Liaising with the media and pitching stories to journalists.
• Lots of other writery things – ask me if I can help!

I also have loads of experince in:
• Communications and public relations.
• Social media management.
• Strategy.
• Campaign planning and execution.
• Project management for things like annual reports.

I can help you with:
• Award applications
• Copy for grant applications
• Social media posts
• Words for websites
• Annual reports
• Magazine-style stories
• News stories
• Media releases

Do I sound like your cup of tea? Get in touch for a chat - I'd love to hear from you!
