Local news reporter

As a seasoned PR strategist, I regularly train companies how to land epic media coverage using only their in-house team. I’ve taken the leap to strengthen my media skills and become a freelance journalist as well! As part of my training I was fortunate to gain experience with a local newspaper. Here is a sample of my published work as a local news reporter.

Voice of the self-employed

With businesses hitting the headlines during the global pandemic, I’ve been only too happy to contribute to the story and become a voice for the self-employed community. 

Financially, it’s been a tough year for many. Companies have faced closures, had to find new ways to create an income and many fell through the gaps for financial support. It’s no wonder that self-employment has been a hot topic in the news.

So it was my honour to represent the self-employed community and share my experiences and thoughts with the media during the past year.

Here are some of the media names I have appeared in the past few months…
