We’ve seen traffic and engagement growth already for the site which is very satisfying. Kim leading our editorial direction focused on ‘her’, through career, relationships, home, celebrity, news, health and well-being, rounds out our expanded market offering and I can’t wait to see what she will create.”

I’m really inspired by Nicole Sheffield’s vision, and the energy and trajectory of NewsLifeMedia – and honoured to have the opportunity to build on the successes of the much-lovedKidspot.com.au. I look forward to working with Prue Cox and the brilliant Kidspot team to give Australian women the most positive, dynamic and engaging digital community in the market.”
