Bio

With nearly 10 years experience in PR and social media, I have always had a passion for creative storytelling.

 

Managing high profile clients such as Jetstar, Treasures, Ben & Jerry’s and Contiki, I know how to think quick, creatively and cut through the noise. For me, it’s all about story first, channel second.

 

With my freelancing business, Plain Jane, I get to surround myself with incredible people and bring these authentic stories to live.

 

As a strategic thinker, I'm always looking at the big picture with communications, and with processes business-wide. As a trained journalist, I "write for Marge, but for Homer to understand" which is my way of saying I can take complex issues and write them in plain English so everybody can understand.
