Experience Description: More than 10 years experience in publishing and journalism. Lifestyle Health Editor for Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.
I am the Lifestyle Health Editor for Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.
Having started my career in magazines more than 10 years ago, working at The Australian Women’s Weekly, I have since freelanced as a feature writer for various publications, returned to university to do a Master’s in journalism before moving into newspapers, working in both online and print, six years ago.
I have worked as a producer, a journalist and an editor. I have worked solo, worked as part of a team and managed teams. As well as writing for the lifestyle section, my work has appeared in Good Food, Traveller, Extra and Sunday Life. I have had front page stories, multiple lead stories for the SMH and The Age online and a regular restaurant review column in the Sun Herald.
I know the industry intimately and know that our career paths are not always linear – we all need support and guidance to refine our abilities and achieve our goals; I look forward to helping others to achieve theirs.
