Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

I have been fortunate enough to work as a contributor to two fantastic book projects throughout my career. One was a science reference book, and as a 'science nerd' this was a wonderful project to be involved in. The best part is being able to share my work with my children.

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

My weeks are varied, which is what I love about freelancing. One day I might be interviewing someone for a magazine article, and the next I'll be meeting with a new client to discuss their marketing goals.

My favourite part of my job is meeting new clients, and learning about their businesses. Every business has its own personality, and I love learning how to express their unique brand voice in writing.

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

I work from a fantastic home studio with a fabulous view of a mature magnolia tree in our yard. I love it!

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

I have a Bachelor's degree in Science as well as a postgraduate degree in PR & Communication. I've also studied as a Health & Nutrition coach. One of the biggest issues facing the wellness sector at the moment is the publication of poorly written - and in some cases dangerous - health information on the Internet. I'm on a mission to promote quality health and wellness information that is backed by evidence-based research.

What are the tools of your trade?

I couldn't work without the following tools:

  • My Apple Mac
  • LinkedIn - my primary source of referrals
  • Spotify - the 'Focus' soundtracks are great for concentrating while I write
  • Adobe Creative Cloud - I'm a graphics junkie, and frankly, nothing beats the holy trinity of Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator
  • My Macquarie Dictionary and Thesaurus
  • My KikkiK Wall Planner and Diary
  • Wunderlist app on my iPhone

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

I love collaborating with others. Freelancing can sometimes be a lonely pursuit, so when the opportunity presents itself to share ideas with others, I'm in!

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

After many years as a freelancer, I've learned that everyone - no matter who they are, where they come from, or what they do - has a story to tell. I've had the privilege of helping many people capture those stories, and it remains one of the most enjoyable parts of my job.
