Melbournian to the heart, soon-to-be-divorced Mama of four boys who takes amazing photos most of the time, Cherie is an entrepreneur, very creative and sometimes downright ridiculous. It’s her intelligent and witty writing style that always manages to make even the most absurd situation into a hilarious story. Cherie is currently working on a book based on her popular short stories (www.cheriemckay.com) as well as managing her photography business The Memory Supply Co.
After spending over ten years in the corporate sector, Cherie ventured into photography, quickly realising that the world didn’t need another backyard photographer – instead the world needed beautiful camera bags specifically designed for women. Cherie designed her own range of camera bags and founded the company SHUTTER|bag. Manufactured in China with distributors located in Australia, Europe and the USA, Cherie sold SHUTTER|bag in 2013. It was Cherie’s knowledge of social media and her innovative, sometimes risky style that grew her business quickly.
When she’s not using her written words to make people laugh, she’s writing to provoke thought, as well as encouraging and leading her readers to not only view the world with more empathy and love, but also the view themselves with more strength, love and success.
