I have been a journalist for 15 years, covering regional and rural issues, as well as metropolitan news in Sydney. I began my career at the Daily Liberal newspaper in 2006 where I completed a cadetship before moving to several other areas to broaden my skills. Most recently I was Chief of Staff at 9 News Sydney for 7 years. I moved back to my hometown of Dubbo in 2020, and have enjoyed getting back to my country NSW roots and covering the issues that are important to regional and rural NSW.
