Samantha is a journalist and communications specialist with experience in agriculture, agrifood tech innovation and investment, sustainability, fashion and brand strategy. She holds a Bachelor of Creative Industries majoring in journalism and fashion, and studies in Sustainable Agriculture from Charles Sturt University.
Growing up in outback Queensland on a cattle and sheep station, gave Samantha a nuanced perspective of Australian agriculture – where she first began her career with Rural Press. She has since cultivated her writing repertoire as an editor, launched print and digital publications, and worked in the Middle East and Australia supporting brands, such as Amex, AgriFutures Australia, Qantas, Rabobank, NSW Farmers, Virbac, and Syngenta.
Now based in Inverell in regional New South Wales, Samantha takes great pleasure in sharing stories from around the world that urge the community to think deeply about our future food security and the pivotal role of innovation.
