Writer | Editor | Proofreader



I’m a communication specialist and versatile writer, experienced in delivering outcomes for clients in the public and private sectors.


Proficient in producing a wide range of copy, I write speeches and opinion pieces, submissions and media releases, as well as website content, social media posts and eDMs.


Clients also value my editorial support - I translate technical information into accessible explanations and narratives, sharpen messages, polish speeches and articles, and turn corporate documents such as board papers into plain English.


I’ve worked as a media adviser, PR consultant, industry lobbyist and freelance writer, helping government departments, politicians, scientists, farmers and businesses develop and deliver written content that has been crafted to achieve specific outcomes.
