our team

Born to be wildly creative

At Refresh Marketing, we’re a tight-knit team of creative word nerds.

We love puns and alliterations. We debate about hyphens. And for us, nothing hits the spot better than nailing the perfect headline. But most importantly, we’re a group of professionals who support each other through thick and thin – and do our best for every client.

Vikki

Director, Writing Skills Trainer & Content Strategist

When I was little, I wanted to be:
A kindy teacher

A marketer born and bred, I decided to go out on my own after 10 years as an employee in big corporations. (Turns out, bureaucracy and politics are overrated.)

In those early years, I freelanced by day – and lectured in marketing at Monash by night.

Then as my client base grew, I took the plunge and hired other writers to give me a helping hand. Years on, and Refresh Marketing is now a bustling agency with a small team and countless projects always on the go. 

Today, as Director, I focus mostly on client strategy, team leadership, account management and business development.

I’m also out and about at least one day a week presenting writing skills workshops to corporate teams and individuals.

A mad dog lover since forever, I’m especially partial to Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. And a tad obsessed with my little tricolour girl, Peggy – the princess of my household.

Tori

General Manager &
Lead Copywriter

When I was little, I wanted to be:
An ice cream chef

With dual qualifications in science and journalism, I have a knack for understanding and communicating complex ideas.

My career began in publishing as an Editor for a range of trade publications spanning oil, gas and engineering. 

I later moved into communications, specialising in content and engagement strategy. This included community buy-in campaigns for state government – and crisis comms on topics such as whale strandings and bushfires.

Then, after meeting Vikki, I was keen to experience agency life. We connected instantly and the huge diversity of projects at Refresh Marketing excited me.

Now as a senior team member, I love building strong partnerships with our clients, solving their problems and helping their businesses grow.

A self-confessed plant lady, outside of work you can find me propagating plants for my ever-expanding indoor jungle.

Sara

Senior Copywriter

When I was little, I wanted to be:
Nikki Webster

A long-standing member of the Refresh team, I bring scriptwriting and digital marketing experience from Brisbane to New York City. With qualifications in media and communications, psychology and philosophy, I’m a curious and critical thinker who loves crafting words to influence human behaviour. I’m also a self-professed backgammon pro and I like to shake my hips like Shakira.

Mitch

Senior Copywriter

When I was little, I wanted to be:
A Jedi

Having worked across media, PR and marketing, I’ve got a knack for producing content that strengthens brands. I’m also interested in psychology and behavioural economics – always curious about how words can affect perception and decisions. When not writing, I’m a landscape photographer. And I enjoy scouring Google Maps for unmarked forest trails to explore.

Maddy

Copywriter & Marketing Lead

When I was little, I wanted to be:
A movie theatre usher

As a recent marketing graduate, I bring creative writing and design skills to the team. I’m fascinated by consumer behaviour and how it shapes communications strategy and copywriting. Always abreast of trends and culture, I believe inspiration is all around. We just have to keep our eyes and ears open! When not at work, I love to draw. And I take my op shopping very seriously – always buying second-hand wherever possible.

Natalie

Copywriter

When I was little, I wanted to be:
A mermaid

I was a broadcast journalist for years before moving into the world of digital content and marketing. As an avid story lover, I’m always excited about writing content that is personal, relevant, and easy to understand, no matter the topic or industry. I love word games and puns. I also dabble a bit in art. But mostly I try to survive my kids’ demands and build my secret choc stash.

Myles

Copywriter

When I was little, I wanted to be:
Pro soccer player

Wanting to pursue a writing career a little later in life, I completed my Master’s degree in Editing, Publishing and Creative Writing. Since then, I have worked in digital marketing, PR and copywriting. This has given me a real taste of many different writing types and styles. Beyond the written word, I’m a mental health advocate – reading and sharing inspiring stories when I can. In my spare time, I put my skates on and hit the ice for some fierce ice hockey tournaments!

Zach

Copywriter

When I was little, I wanted to be:
A singer

As a former YouTube content creator, I bring a strong sense of voice and tone to my writing – with just a little bit of cheek. With qualifications in professional writing and editing, I’m deeply fascinated by psychology and anything surrounding mental health and personal development. I love music and books. And, I make a wicked latte.

Alis

Copywriter & Marketing Assistant

When I was little, I wanted to be:
A teddy bear doctor

With a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and Screen Studies under my belt, I bring witty storytelling and depth to my copywriting. I’m fond of all things film and cinema, and have a passion for well crafted stories. When I’m not writing copy, I enjoy reading up on cultural psychology, and even dabble in poetry! I’m also strangely good at choosing the best dish at restaurants.
