Margo White is an established feature writer and columnist. One of her earliest journalism jobs was with the NZ Listener, where she was a writer and later Arts and Books Editor. She has spent several years as a senior writer at Metro magazine, and was the deputy editor at New Zealand Geographic before deciding to go back to full-time freelancing. Then the recession kicked in. That’s how smart she is. She is catholic in her choice of subject material (just as long as it’s nothing to do with technology) and is more interested in examining the science of health than recommending that people take their vitamins, exercise three times a week and cut down on the carbs. She believes people can worry far too much about their health, but could pay more attention to her own.
