Benalla Ensign has a new journalist who has made the tree change from Melbourne.February 7, 2013 4:44am
A self-confessed lover of words and science, Monique Freer has relocated from the beachside suburbs of Melbourne to Benalla to jump headfirst into a journalism career.
Having completed an Arts/Science double degree, Monique joined the Benalla Ensign as a cadet and is looking forward to becoming a part of the newsroom and the community.
Monique discovered a love of journalism at university, when she realised a career existed in which she was able to write about things that interested her. Monique recalls being told that journalism is a privileged career, and is looking forward to being able to experience this herself.
Science remains a strong interest of hers and Monique is not ashamed to admit that she finds medical research truly fascinating! Previously Monique has spent time at The Age and the Herald Sun, and written for the RaboDirect Rebels’ match day programs, Women’s Health & Fitness magazine and LogL website.
Her interests outside the newsroom revolve heavily around health, fitness and sport. An ex-dancer, Monique spent the past four years working in a gym and loves staying fit.
She is also a passionate St Kilda fan, and lives and breathes all things AFL.
