Role: Regional Strategic Communications Coordinator

Profile:

I coordinate communications for CARE Australia’s International Programmes team, primarily focusing on the Asia-Pacific region. This gives me the opportunity to delve into the details of a diverse range of CARE’s work to pull out the most interesting nuggets to share with the world.

I joined CARE in 2013 as Communications Advisor for the Cambodia office. During my time with CARE I have supported CARE Cambodia’s private sector engagement with a focus on the garment industry and coordinated communications for the Made by Women impact growth strategy in Asia. Seeing CARE’s work on the ground in garment factories in Asia has given me a particular interest in ethical consumption—as I’m based in Cambodia, I enjoy making the most of all the sustainable shopping opportunities available here.

Having started my career in marketing, prior to joining CARE I was leading communications for a global philanthropy publication. I hold a BA in English from the University of Bristol.
