Tavia Tindall

Tavia Tindall is a freelance writer and elementary educator who really does tell tales out of school.  Her experiences working in the fields of law, medicine, and education have provided her with an endless supply of real life anecdotes and insights to keep her writing about the workplace for all of eternity.  To maximise use of her journalism degree, she also spins yarns about food and travel on her personal blog and other social media.  These dalliances with the digital revolution will, however, NEVER force her to break up with No. 2 pencils, felt tip pens, and steno pads.
