Nicola Shepheard

Nicola joined NBR in April 2020 after 19 years working in, or at the edge of, the media. She started out at North & South magazine doing lengthy profiles and social issue features, moving to Herald on Sunday as a feature writer and then taking a year out to do an MA in Arts Journalism at Columbia University in New York, supported by a Fulbright Award, other scholarships and the local bagel food truck ($1 breakfasts!).

Returning to Aotearoa, she joined Metro magazine as a staff writer and arts editor. Then came the babies-and-freelancing chapter, followed by four years at the University of Auckland as a media adviser for the Business School, Liggins Institute and Medical and Health Sciences. She loves tracing connections between biography, social-economic forces and serendipity; the big picture(s) and nitty-gritty of everyday life in business and beyond.
