An Australian who has maintained a daily obsession with news since a young age, Serena started out as a social worker, working with homeless teenagers for five years, before making a career change to journalism.

She studied International Communications with a major in journalism at Macquaire University in Sydney, and completed a year-long study abroad program at the University of Washington, in Seattle.
