Michelle’s career in Broadcast Television has spanned 20 years and 2 Hemispheres.
After a decade of climbing the ladder in Post-Production, Michelle achieved the position of Senior Editor with a leading Australian broadcaster. Award-winning News and Current Affairs content followed but Michelle’s desire to level-up her career delivered a move to the other side of the globe.
Settling in London she was in regular demand from ITV, CNN, Al Jazeera and Sky, where she educated and informed viewers with breaking and memorable stories in the white heat of live News Broadcasting.
A focus on creating long form sent Michelle north in 2014 to produce a weekly magazine show. After four years with ITV in Edinburgh as their sole staff Editor in Scotland, she returned to the freelance market in 2018 and was quickly entrusted to deliver Fact. & Fact. Ent programmes for some of the UK’s most exciting production companies including Blast! Films, Tern Television, Scotch!, IWC Media and Red Sky Productions.
Joining the TRC team in 2021, Michelle brings a passion for creating engaging television and front line knowledge of the UK Post-Production sector. Michelle is a member of the Guild of British Film Editors and Women in Film and Television organisation.
