Honoured to tell more stories in the Burnett
RURAL areas like the Burnett are a wonderful place to start a career.
I have just marked two years of taking photos, telling stories and meeting some incredible people in the South and North Burnett.
Having moved from my hometown of Ipswich, I started as a cadet journalist in Kingaroy in 2018.
Now I have the privilege of stepping up as an editorial team leader and digital producer with the Central and North Burnett Times and South Burnett Times.
The role involves mentoring other journalists on what matters most – telling your stories.
It is truly exciting to be able to move so far in my career while staying in Kingaroy with the same paper and team.
I have grown a deep appreciation of the Burnett community over the past two years while covering celebrations, watching milestones and crying during tragedies.
But my admiration of the sense community goes beyond my job. I have joined the orchestra and a touch football team, helped with a local youth group and was the 2019 Kingaroy Miss Showgirl.
I look forward to this new opportunity to serve the community in my new role.
