Alicia Nally joined the Women in Media Far North Queensland committee in 2017 after starting at the Cairns Post as a reporter in 2016.
She began her career in Hervey Bay before moving to Brisbane to work for the city’s weekly News Corp community newspapers.
Nally now covers business, real estate and education for Cairns’ daily newspaper and regularly appears on SkyNews’ Your Money channel helping reveal the tropics’ hidden property gems to those in the south.
She said Women in Media is fantastic for networking and mentoring and is a great way to meet other people in the profession if you’re new to a city or region.
She says the chance to cement relationships with contacts and other Far Northerners has been invaluable to her both professionally and personally.
An experienced public relations professional with a background in journalism, Pip Miller is the principal at the helm of Pip Miller PR, Cairns’ leading public relations consultancy that looks after a number of high-profile clients.
Miller established the firm 25 years ago in response to the city and surrounding region’s need for media and communications expertise.

Fiona Sewell has been a member of the Women in Media Far North Queensland committee since it was launched in 2014.
She is an experienced ABC presenter and producer but is now Chief of Staff at ABC Far North in Cairns.
It can be a tough industry, so Sewell says it is fantastic to know there are women who have your back.
Women in Media is vital for networking, mentoring and support.
