After sharing the stories that mattered to the Wagga community, I have travelled further south to the NSW and Victorian border to pursue a career in broadcast journalism.
I started my career in print and online media in 2018 and became a voice for the community. I shared issues the region was facing and broke original news before other media outlets; which made it to national news.
Building strong contacts is vital and one of my strongest skills.
I'm a dedicated news reporter with a strong reputation for effective preparation and delivery of stories ranging in importance and complexity.
I consider myself personable with leadership skills and a background in delivering in-depth and informative news pieces.
I want to strive to maintain the values and integrity of quality journalism throughout my career.
Hi Jess, clearly people saw the news last night. Had three emails overnight from people in similar situations. This was in an email from one of the: "I am so grateful to have been watching the news last night and admire you putting yourself out for people in need, such as myself."
