Abbey- Victoria Smith
I was a late bloomer into the world of journalism and news reading but in the short time I've been in my dream job- I've been a mover and shaker. My nickname is hippie Abbey among my colleagues because I'm that person who really does believe you can make anything happen in your life with your thoughts.
I read the news 5 days a week in Cairns for Hit and Triple M. I'm up at 3am and home after an F45 session, ready to get back into writing about a number of topics for my own freelance clients. My main attribute- I love finding out what makes a person, them. We are heavily focused on local news, so the amount of people who are going above and beyond to change the piece of paradise I live in, are the ones I want to have on the phone, telling me why we should be listening to their voice.
I currently have a handful of clients I create blogs, newsletters and engaging content for their websites. I also have my own blogging page, She Can Talk, which documents the ups and downs of my own life. This all began after a life changing trip to the states, and 8 months of working so hard, I eventually landed my dream job up in sunny Townsville.
I can write about anything, given some research, a spare few minutes and my laptop and love to delve into mental health, coming from my own background of dealing with autoimmune illness and spending the past year working on mental health coaching. Working in commercial radio and knowing people who are listening want the facts in an engaging way, where possible, has helped me to tweak my writing for businesses who are trying to engage clients with an attention grabbing headline and leave the details in the print.
Writing has and will always be a part of my life. I write to tell my story, but I also write to tell other people who can't seem to get the right words out on their own. Let me help you tell yours.
