About Jocelyn Nickels

There’s something winning about the combination of Starts at 60 and Queensland’s glorious weather, because Jocelyn is another journalist who has over the years been a key part of the Starts at 60 Media Team.

Jocelyn obtained a Bachelor of Journalism at the University of South Australia and started her writing career at regional newspapers in the chilly Adelaide Hills and Mount Gambier. Life in the press suited her so well that she received the Country Press South Australia Young Journalist of the Year award for her work reporting domestic violence in the community for the award-winning The Border Watch newspaper.

In 2018 Jocelyn left the world of print, however, to take up digital journalism with Starts at 60, where she focused most of her writing on current affairs.
