A communications specialist with experience in internal and external stakeholder engagement, social responsibility and policy, I develop and implement brand-led strategic communication, integrated marketing communication and public relations strategies for large organisations.With a strong personal network of regional and national media contacts for effective media relations, I create thought leadership for awareness in the media to deliver momentum to media coverage and messaging, and engage and manage external relationships to communicate the most compelling stories. I deliver consistent, high quality marketing communications for national and international markets and work collaboratively to deliver brand campaigns and content strategies that grow audiences.
Specialities: News and magazines journalism, public relations, healthcare communications and marketing, strategic communication, media relations, stakeholder management, public engagement, crisis and issues management, social responsibility. I am currently studying postgraduate communication through the University of Canberra. This degree has helped focus my academic work towards strategic communication practice and build on earlier research in the political science discipline and in public relations.
