Professional biography

Belinda (Be) worked for about a nanosecond as a research assistant (pharmacology and biochemistry were her science majors) in a number of workplaces before winning a journalism cadetship at John Fairfax in 1985. (In an apparent gift of fate, The Sun-Herald was in need of a health reporter at the time, so she was one of 13 people chosen for cadetships from 2000 applicants.) She has been writing, editing and sub-editing for various employers – ranging from The Sunday Telegraph to The Veterinarian – ever since. Web-content coordination for the faculty is a return stint at the University for Be, who worked with the Digital and Print Media office in a freelance capacity in 2003–04, where she coordinated the University's 2004 Annual Report and made invaluable contributions to the University style guide regarding bullet-point lists.
