She learned how to multi-task at a fast food chain, studied Professional Writing and Editing, got RSI as a transcript typist at a media monitoring service and photocopied lots of mathematic manuscripts as a publishing assistant for an educational publisher.
These days, she works in the visual arts sector and likes exploring Melbourne laneways and galleries for a new discovery that will give her goosebumps. She lives on the Mornington Peninsula with her two children in a mid-century modern home.
