Johanna Baker-Dowdell

Freelance writer and PR consultant

Central Coast, NSW | www.strawberrycommunications.com.au

After discovering you could make a career out of a need to know what is happening in the world, Joh studied journalism and public relations at the University of Newcastle. She worked at several newspapers before 'crossing to the other side' as a marketer and PR consultant.

A four-year working holiday in the UK combined Joh's love of writing and marketing with travel, and inspired her to start her own business when returning to Australia in 2005. Those plans went awry and Joh became a mum in 2006, adding a new dimension to her life experience. As her baby slept Joh built her freelance writing and PR work into a business and Strawberry Communications was born in 2007, with the aim of helping other businesses tell their story.
