Experience

Summary

I have worked within the media industry for the last few years and am a published writer. I am passionate about writing for organisations that aim to change opinions and help find solutions to global issues.

Work history

The Hoxby Collective
Associate
As an Associate with the Hoxby Collective, I am able to work with clients and projects that I really care about.
Win Television
News Director
After working for Australia's largest regional television network as a PA, I was lucky enough to work as a news director. Both of these roles enabled me to learn the importance of deadlines, teamwork and how heavily a community relies on a news station.

Portfolio

Like Many Other Women, I Find Sex Agonising - The Guardian

An opinion piece that was published in The Guardian. The day that this article was published, it was the most read piece on The Guardian that day. This is a good example of how people are able to connect with what I have to say.

Remember This When You Feel Like You're Not Enough

A Thought Catalog piece that deals with self-loathing and learning to love your you-ness.
