First job
Fashion and Beauty Features Writer at Culture Magazine.

Story so far
By some insane stroke of luck (or perhaps it was the reward for the three years I spent interning at every magazine and fashion brand I could squeeze my way into) I managed to land a job as a Features Writer at Culture Magazine the same week I graduated from QUT. In this position I split my time between writing fashion and beauty features for the magazine and reporting on camera for Culture TV. I travelled a lot covering stories, attending launch parties and events and interviewing some absolutely amazing people (looking back on my interview portfolio I think I’ve been a little spoilt). Dream job much?

After three years I decided it was time for a change and I was ready for a brand new challenge so I got certified as a Body Attack Instructor and my newfound love of health and wellness combined with my love of writing took me over to Lorna Jane’s global head office where I scored a job as a Copywriter.

Just eight months later (after a LOT of hard work) I was promoted to Deputy Editor which is my current position. On any given day I can be found writing for the latest book, marketing campaign or contributing to the blog. Definite dream job!
