Hi there, I'm Lynnette. I love discovering people's stories. I also love cooking and eating, exploring and learning, mountain biking, trail running, skiing, art in all its many forms...and obsessively following news, politics and health and science research!

In my past life I spent 15 years as an award winning journalist covering health, medicine, and science--as well travel, adventure, and human interest stories for leading publications throughout Australia and New Zealand. My work has appeared in The Weekend Australian, Outer Edge, Madison, Marie Claire, The Sunday Telegraph, The New Zealand Herald, The Sunday Star Times, New Internationalist, The Illawarra Mercury, Australian Doctor, Bicycling Australia, Medical Observer, as well as several other specialised magazines and web sites. 

I currently work full time creating resources and helping develop programs that support people to better manage their health conditions. It's fun and meaningful work, but I wanted  to re-create a space to indulge in some of my other passions and share the stories that move and inspire and fascinate me. That's my aim for this blog and the upcoming podcast I am creating.

I'd love to hear from you  welcome any suggestions for people you think I should interview. Pop me an email or find me on social media. I'm NomadLynnette on Instagram and Twitter, and BeyondTheMapStories on Facebook.
