Lives In: Sydney, Australia
About Me: I’m a journalist by trade and have spent the last decade working for various newspapers, magazines and television. Just before becoming a mama, I was the Marketing Manager for an iconic global children’s channel. When my maternity leave came to an end, I decided I was having way too much fun being a mama and travelling with my little fam bam so traded the 9-5 to start my own project combining my skills and passions. I created my blog NOT SO MUMSY for like-minded modern mamas who, like me, love and celebrate motherhood, but also want to retain a sense of self and style.
In my pre-baby life I cameoed as a hostess at a high-end NYC celebrity jaunt, spent months in Africa bottle feeding lion cubs, cycled across Cambodia in a heat- wave and was an honorary member of the Panamanian Latino Surf pro tour.
Since becoming a mama, I’m determined to keep the adventure in my life travelling the world with my husband’s international eyewear brand and blogging about life and style for the modern mama.

Words you live by/quotes you love: “The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone elses highlight reel.” Steven Furtick
It’s so important to remember this in the social media world. My feed of curated pics is definitely my highlight reel, but I’m also very open about the not-so-perfect behind the scenes and struggles of motherhood- sharing my personal story of miscarriage, judgement for extended breastfeeding and other real-life mama struggles.
