Rochelle is the newest creative to join the team, with a strong background in journalism, television production and communications, we’re lucky to have her call CornerPost home.
Back in the year 2000, Rochelle emerged from a communications degree ready to face the world of serious journalism and launched straight into a job as Thredbo’s snow reporter. Hard-hitting indeed! From there, she spent some time in the big smoke, first as a researcher and producer for Channel Nine Sydney on various shows. As well as a news producer at Sky News. A coastal girl at heart, she eventually succumbed to Coffs’ allure and returned via a stint at NBN in Newcastle then a few years news reporting in Coffs.
But the pull of travel was strong and Rochelle somehow struck a happy medium between jetting off overseas indefinitely and committing to a serious “city” job by landing a gig as a producer for Getaway… yeah, you know that awesome travel TV Show! She landed the holy grail role, being based in Coffs Harbour and over the past decade or so and some 50+ countries later it certainly is the dream job I think we’re all a little jealous of!
Among many other TV shows Rochelle has weaved her magic on, she’s also written for various magazines including: Gourmet Traveller, Voyeur, Travel and Leisure and local publication Coast Living. What an all-rounder!
These days, life is a lovely mix of home time with her boys (husband, two little ratbags and an ageing border collie), travelling with Getaway (still jealous…), camping whenever they can and, given her boys obsession with surfing… spending endless hours on the beach.
Aside from being our resident ‘go-to’ for travel tips, Rochelle is helping clients with their content and communication needs… and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind sharing a travel story or two along the way too.
