Nicole is a Queensland Clarion Award-nominated journalist with almost two decades’ experience in newspapers and magazines.
A bona fide word nerd, she was urged to become a journalist by her great, late grade seven English teacher, whom she credits for first igniting her love of and passion for her craft.
Nicole’s “done time” in newsrooms around the country and overseas, in both traditional and new media.
She recently left a 10-year tenure as a senior news/features journalist at News Corp to freelance and make babies.
Prior to that, she worked for New Idea and Reader’s Digest Australia magazines, as an online journalist for the British Medical Association in London and at Sunshine Coast Daily, where she began her career post-university journalism degree the old-fashioned way: via a one-year cadetship.
Nicole’s first love is feature writing (apart from heels), but she has also dabbled in freelance editing/proofreading and ghost-writing books and PR.
Her word ninja skills can polish any project. Need a stickler for punctuation or grammar, or a writer with sass, flair and great skill? Nic’s your gal.
Nicole is currently enjoying being a regular contributor in digital media, as part of the Shesaid.com team, for which she writes about social issues, sex, relationships, fashion, beauty and more.
With two toddlers aged three and one, Nicole is a fast, efficient and productive worker, relishing the chance to hone her craft outside child wrangling.
Nicole’s work is always of the highest standard thanks to experience gained working in some of the toughest newsrooms in the country.
Her other achievements include being awarded APN’s Editorial Competition Merit Award for Excellence, at Sunshine Coast Daily.
Newsmodo is an invaluable way for journalists to showcase their talents and connect with employers.
