How did I get here? Funny you should ask

In the beginning

I started university life as a music student in violin performance, before transitioning into law and eventually graduating with a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts (majoring in International Politics) from the University of Adelaide.

I worked as a lawyer for many years, in Melbourne and then in Adelaide. My work spanned commercial and civil law, with a specialisation in employment and industrial law.

After a career break to have children, I took on some work as a lecturer and tutor, providing professional training to law graduates. I developed a course in plain-English communication, which fuelled my interest in further expanding my skills in this area.

The digital awakening

Around the same time, I established my recipe site, Gluten-free Lunchboxes, giving me a grassroots start in recipe development, food writing, and digital content creation and management.

This led me to freelance work, creating long-form articles for law firms and other quasi-legal organisations. I produced content in a range of legal areas and jurisdictions.

Next, I worked for a few years as a content manager in an Adelaide law firm. My primary job was content creation, but I also managed the website, social media accounts and undertook other marketing activities. I wrote in every practice area offered by the firm. Here, I discovered my ability to adapt and to learn quickly, two critical skills for any copywriter.

When this work came to an end, I realised I’d amassed a range of skills with diverse interest areas.

What to do?

I’m a believer (in SEO)

It seemed a natural step to delve into freelancing completely, but I needed to narrow my options.

After talking with a web developer, the path became clear.

SEO copywriting.

Say what?

Web-based content specially written to:

  • Deliver easy-to-understand, relevant content to internet users
  • Rank well in search engine results

I decided that retraining was the go.

So I:

These decisions turbo-charged my abilities and dramatically improved my services. And even now, I benefit from ongoing training through my professional memberships.

My legal niche

Websites are hungry beasts. They need constant attention and a good flow of content. I’m trained to deliver well-crafted, properly structured websites to efficiently communicate the marketing message and prompt the reader to take action.

And I’ve carved out a specialist area for myself as a legal copywriter. Law firms need copywriters who know about the law. Who understand that a simple full-stop or comma can crucially change the meaning of a document. And who can strike a balance between professional communication and one that’s also reader-friendly.

It’s a tough challenge to find a writer who can deliver in all those areas. It’s even tougher to find someone who’s legally qualified and SEO-trained.

But that’s me.

And you’re here.

I’m a legal and business SEO copywriter, ready to help your organisation with sharp, trusted content for your website.

I love the diversity of the work and the opportunities to keep learning.

Where to from here?

Writing web copy is my priority, especially for legal websites. 

I also use my plain-English skills in other areas, for example, website copy for small service-based businesses, government sectors and the food and music industries.

I’m looking forward to delivering more in-house legal training to law firms on how to create SEO-friendly, reader-friendly articles and blog posts. 

Maybe you’ve got some other ideas about how I can help your organisation.
