Domenica Kiely
Domenica Kiely

My name is Domenica, but my tribe call me Dom. I’ve written for a number of successful and popular Australian blogs, and I have experience working in both education and the media. I have a slight (ahem) shopping addiction, but I prefer to think of it as an ethical contribution to the growth of the economy. I am fuelled by a love of art, photography, home interiors, trashy television and my family (not in that order).

Kylie Lewis

Kylie loved school. But in Grade 3 Mr Green wrote on her school report ‘Kylie talks too much in class.’ Implying it was a bad thing! Little did he know this would become her strength and make her a perfect candidate to become an executive coach, digital marketer and personal development advocate. Today, she wholeheartedly embraces her love of a good chat and help brands and the people behind them create their vision, build their foundations, manage their business, embrace social media communities and take care of themselves in the process. She gets immense joy from connecting wholehearted kin together and making new friends. With 18 years of online sales, web project management, digital and content marketing for leading Australian brands behind her, (most recently at the head of digital for kikki.K) she now coaches creative, curious and entrepreneurial businesses interested in starting, evolving or organising their approach to content marketing and social media in a fun, empowering, creative and practical way. www.ofkin.com

Penelope Herbert
Penelope Herbert

Journalist / Style Editor
If it’s cool, quirky, chic or unique then I’m interested in writing about it, interviewing it, promoting it, or trying it out. An inveterate fashionista of wardrobe and home, I should have become a designer (fashion, interiors or homes) but instead I became a writer. It’s something I love, writing about my lifelong passions.
It was a convoluted path interspersed with work in the film industry, corporate marketing, public relations, magazine publishing and radio broadcasting. Yet here I am. I write a weekly Home + Interiors newspaper column, blog at www.dontcallmepenny.com.au (where I offer specialist writing and promotional services to design based businesses) and I interview people in design from across the globe on www.TheStylePodcast.com. Please e-mail me if you’d like to chat about your passions in design and home. ph.marketingmaven@icloud.com

Jemma Giovannucci
Jemma Giovannucci

Jemma is a freelance content, social media and public relations pro from Melbourne. As a passionate writer from a young age, she always assumed she would become a journalist or author. As fate would have it, in her late teens she became fascinated with social media, blogging and the effect that these two forms of digital marketing were having on small business.

It was her passion for entrepreneurship that pushed her to forgo the traditional route of job hunting, and focus on building a business for herself. SHAE Communications focuses on small businesses with big ambitions. Jemma loves spreading the word of these businesses and helping hard working entrepreneurs get the attention and success they deserve. Her passion for writing also extends to sharing parts of her experience on her blog and social media platforms, in the hopes of inspiring young people in her field who may be lacking guidance.

Tessa White
Tessa White

Tessa founded Down that Little Lane in November 2011. Her instincts for a new trend are sharp, her mind even sharper and her work ethic is completely off the charts.
What Tessa doesn’t know about getting yourself noticed for free, how to get PR and networking your way to the top, is not worth knowing.
DTLL has over 230k followers on Pinterest, 76k on Facebook, 67k on Instagram and is still growing so it’s fair to say the proof is in the stats.
Tessa is also bit of a geeky girl and has a large amount of tech knowledge thanks to building Down that Little Lane from the ground up on a bespoke platform.
