Lucy has nursed her ambition to be a journalist since 1987 when at the age of seven she announced her intention to the family video camera with steely determination.
Born in Victoria but raised in NSW, she worked in the subscription department of Murdoch Magazines before completing an undergraduate degree in history at UNSW. She then followed a whole bunch of other people her age to work and play in the UK – a period most notable for snow, warm beer, slippery sidewalks and a stint on the news desk of The Sun in Dublin.
She returned to Australia in 2004 and started a postgraduate degree in journalism at UTS. An internship at the Village Voice (Sydney not New York), writing for free press and a stint producing news stories on local radio followed until Lucy joined CareerOne.com.au as a careers writer. In mid 2009 she joined team at The Punch.
