Georgia Lupton – Content and Social Media Specialist
Background: I was born in Sydney and spent the first 7 years of my life there prior to moving to Rutherford with my parents and younger brother. I spent my time outside of school taking as many dance classes as possible, a passion which began from the age of 3.
Education: I went to Rutherford Technology High School before heading off to the University of Newcastle to study a Bachelor of Communication majoring in Journalism. I graduated from that degree with Distinction in 2016 before deciding to study a Diploma of Marketing and Communication online to fill in my time during the COVID lockdowns.
Career: I started working at McDonald’s as a teenager, spending close to 7 years there in multiple roles. I briefly worked at Oporto as well before scoring a job as a radio journalist at NEWFM and 2HD in Newcastle once I finished university. After spending 2 ½ years as a breakfast news presenter, waking up at 2:45am and starting my shift at 4am every day, I decided I didn’t want to wake up so early for the next 40 years of my career and moved into a marketing role instead.
Last job: My last job was as a Resource Creator and Copywriter at Teacher Professional Development where I took on lots of different roles including writing, proofreading and editing copy, managing social media, creating graphics and creating educational resources.
Outside work: I am not married but I have been with my partner, Brent for 7 years. I have heaps of hobbies, none of which I am actually good at though. I like to practice yoga, go to the beach, go on bike rides and paint. I also love surfing but I’m literally an adult grom. I also like to grow bonsai trees but have managed to kill all the bonsais I’ve owned.
