Her name is Nikita Skuse, but you can call her Keets if you’d like.
She’s been writing since her departure from the womb and now, as a fully grown person, works in the fields of journalism and communications. Since graduating from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Journalism and Professional Writing, Nikita has begun pursuing a freelance career.
Nikita is based in Adelaide and has spent time as an editor, journalist, social media manager and marketing and communications coordinator.
As a journalist, she is most interested in delving into all the nitty-gritty bits of gender, sexuality, and body image, as well as covering general arts and culture pieces.
As a communications coordinator, she loves helping brands with content strategy, copywriting and editing.
In her spare time she dances horrifically at live music gigs (when the world is not plagued with a pandemic), cross-stitches like the grandma at heart she is and collects unnecessary amounts of stationery.
But most importantly, she’d love to hear from you. Head to her Say Hi page where she will stop narrating her own life and speak to you like a normal(ish) person.
Keets + Comms acknowledges the Peramangk, Ngaduri and Kaurna people, Traditional Custodians of the land we live, work and learn on, and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present.
Nikita has been interning with me at Sleeping Bear this year as part of her final year studies in journalism at UniSA. With minimal guidance and encouragement she has already pulled together this awesome website, organised all of our social media channels, written and designed content for them, helped schedule training and meetings for the rest of the team, collated all of our testimonials and generally helped to push the business to the next level. Nikita is enthusiastic, organised, reliable and able to get things done so that I can focus on the bigger projects that need my attention. If you need to make things happen with written content, social media or general communication – hire Nikita!
