After completing a journalism degree at the University of the Sunshine Coast, I joined the Sunshine Coast Daily in 2010. As the Daily’s police reporter, the round is unprectible, diverse and challenging, but also exciting and is a dream position for me. In between heading to emergency incidents, I love getting the chance to write about amateur and professional theatre and the arts. I’ve also worked in various community roles at the Caboolture News, Buderim Chronicle and Caloundra Weekly. Having worked in several close-knit communities, I have a passion for getting down to issues at a grassroots level and getting to know the Coast and its people. Also a lover of performing arts, movies, sushi, travel, days spent by the pool and reality television. Phone: (07) 5430 8074 Email: megan.mackander@scnews.com.au
