New journalist at the Times
AIMEE Vinci started work as a cadet journalist at the Whitsunday Times this week.
She replaced journalist James Tolmie who has left Airlie Beach to work overseas in Canada after working at the Whitsunday Times for more than two years.
Aimee has recently returned from Florence in Italy where she was an exchange student as part of her Bachelor of media studies at La Trobe University in Melbourne where she has been based for the past three years.
In the past, Aimee has also completed work experience and casual work with the Times.
Having grown up in the Whitsundays, Aimee said she was happy to now be working full time at the Whitsunday Times.
“I'm really looking forward to working back in the community,” she said.
Away from reporting on a wide range of topics in the Whitsundays, Aimee also enjoys being outdoors and hopes this will help her in her role at the Whitsunday Times.
“I love my sport, I love the outdoors and I love fishing,” she said.
“I hope to give back a lot to the local community.”
