Journalist turned freelance writer who loves to tell the stories of the world we live in
Kellie is a former television journalist who decided to get a 'grown up office job' and then missed writing too much. She has reported for 7 Queensland and Prime News on everything from Federal elections to local interest stories. Kellie is fascinated by people and the things they do. With experience working and managing in the public and private sectors she is passionate about women in leadership, current affairs, well-being, supporting introverts to succeed (yes you can be passionate about this!) and learning new things. She also has a serious tea addiction and owns the best dog in the world. Kellie is a keen traveler, reader, dancer, gardener and cook -- especially with her own backyard-grown produce.
