SOCIAL MEDIA AND CONTENT MARKETING SPECIALIST
Kachina Dimmock Version 1.0Â - 2020
Nice to meet you! Hi, I’m Kachina, your Content Marketing Specialist, Australian Army Reservist and Founder of the Content Collective Co. Currently, I’m based in the Northern suburbs of the Illawarra, in a home that’s perfectly nestled between the ocean and green cliffy escarpment. I’ve always been a storyteller for as long as I can remember. From insisting on using Dad’s camera to take allll of the photos on family holidays and writing short poems about Wombats as a child, to discovering other mediums to express myself with as I got older. I’ve been professionally working as a Content Marketer now for over 5 years. Creating stories that impact and surprise my audience is the most important part of my work. I strive to see results. Over the years, I’ve gained experience in a variety of industries, including travel, news, food, community, lifestyle, corporate and legal. It comes with little surprise that creating meaningful content is what gets my blood pulsing. But, my other great loves also include travel and health/fitness. I’m endlessly inspired by adventure, nature and community. I love waking up to new horizons, immersing myself in new experiences and making lifelong friends along the way. Think we could create something amazing together? Feel free to reach out via email!
