With over ten years experience as a writer, I have a strong background in digital, fashion and travel. Having worked in a publishing company for nine years I have a thorough understanding of content and publication processes. With a keen eye and a strong sense of style I have always loved fashion and have worked in fashion retail, for some of Australia’s top designers, for the past seven years. This experience, combined with my Bachelor of Business (Marketing) degree, which I completed in 2011, and my modelling background have left me eager to combine all my experience in one role. I am a strong believer in the saying “do something you love and you will never work a day in your life”.

Communication skills

Excellent communication skills. Have always worked as part of a team where communication is vital. Have a great deal of experience with project management as well as internal communication, reporting and meetings including agendas and minute taking. 

Organised multi-tasker

Given I have always done freelance work it is essential I manage my time well. I also know that by being organised and reliable I help make the jobs of those around me easier. I'm good at prioritising my time and using my attention to detail to ensure no task gets overlooked. I also have experience with managing a team of staff and making sure they have clear briefs and are across what is expected of them.

Well presented

I have always taken great pride in my appearance and sense of style. Both my long career in fashion retail and background in modelling have served to ensure I am always well groomed and dressed appropriately.
