Let me introduce myself. I'm Jaclyn, the chief writer at Tumbleword. It's no major surprise that I ended up in a job where I am surrounded by words. As a child, I pored over word games and created my very own Dewey Decimel system. Boggle was my jam and sneaky reading of books past bedtime was my norm.

I've been a professional writer for nearly fifteen years and have worked extensively on print and web projects for a motley crew of clients. I've had my work published on various digital and print platforms including The Age, Good Food and Broadsheet, and also created content for brands including SEEK, Gary Peer Real Estate and Monash University.  I still get a buzz seeing my name in virtual lights as it reminds me that I am blessed to be living out my lifelong dream.

I started off as a high school English teacher and while I loved sharing my passion with eager students I yearned to be doing the actual writing, not correcting it. Fast forward to 2014 (and almost a decade of writing in the social justice space later) to when Tumbleword was born. This third baby of mine has hit the professional nail on the head, indulging my love of all things lexical with a level of flexibility and creativity that I relish.
