Sherene Strahan

Freelance journalist-writer


I've worked in tv journalism, in teaching, in marketing & communications.
I've raised two sons, earned degrees in Sociology and Education and lived in Indonesia as an Australian Embassy spouse.

I write about People; Family Life; Seniors & Aged Care; Education & Learning. About the internal journeys that connect us. And about anything that makes me go, Wow - more people should know this.

I'm also a content coach and mentor for women entrepreneurs and creatives, on a mission to help more women get their voices heard.
