Give us a quick run down on your background?
I am  a cross-platform journalist with more than 12 years' experience. My career spans television, radio and online. I'm a multi-award-winning journalist and a Walkley finalist and I've worked on a range of programs at the ABC, SBS, Channel 10 and triple j.  

How did you get into the industry?
I wrote a tongue and cheek opinion piece for the Sydney Morning Herald when I was a university student and a television producer at SBS read the piece and invited me to be a guest on a current affairs program. Within a couple of months I landed a full-time job at that very program. 

What is the biggest difference in the industry since you were at university?
Social media! 

What do you do when you are not teaching?
I am a senior reporter at the ABC and I work across radio, television and online news and current affairs. I am also the co-founder of Media Diversity Australia, a not for profit organisation that promotes balanced cultural representation in news and current affairs.But my most rewarding and challenging job is being a mother of two!

What do you enjoy about teaching at Macleay?
I love seeing the energy, passion and creativity among the next generation of story tellers and truth seekers.  I feel honoured to share my experience and expertise to help guide my students.

What subjects do you teach at Macleay?
Investigative Reporting, Globalisation and I run voice and presentation workshops. 

What is the best advice you give your students?
Your ethics and morals (and at times mental health!) will be tested as a journalist. Despite the time pressures or directives from senior editorial leaders - always trust your gut and remember that no story is worth compromising your ethics or morals.
