Hi there,

I’m Sandra Groves, a content writer who loves working with clients to tell their stories.  My goal is to help people share information with clarity and a unique style. I am about helping to write stories that connect people with their audience.

I enjoy crafting content and have experience with websites, brochures, reports, information signage, profiles, blogs, articles, press releases, and more.

My background is also in communications and media, and I enjoy the journalistic aspect of drafting media releases, communication plans, articles, marketing/campaigns, social media, etc.

I have a Diploma in Public Relations & Communications Management and am continuing to study towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. It’s important to remain current in the profession as a member of the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand and the Interpretation Network of New Zealand.

I look forward to getting to know you and helping with your project.

Kind regards

Sandra Groves
