Jenny LeComte is a Canberra-based journalist and freelance writer who began her career as a reporter covering police rounds, court proceedings and local council shenanigans for Rural Press Newspapers in the NSW towns of Cooma and Batemans Bay.
She later worked as a feature writer for the mass market women’s magazine That’s Life in Sydney, and as a content editor for an independent news and current affairs website called Public Debate.
Since moving to Canberra in 2004, Jenny has worked as an Australian Government `spin doctor’ under three exceedingly bad governments.
She has never surrendered her childhood ambition to be a rock journalist for Rolling Stone magazine or a war correspondent (whatever comes first).
