International dream overcomes COVID

FORMER local, Georgia Hammond has embarked on a new journey and taken a leap of faith in her career, moving to America amid a global pandemic.

After graduating from The Hamilton and Alexandra College in 2008, she took on many different producing roles, working for Channel Nine, Southern Cross Ten and producing and presenting news for regional Victoria.

She has produced broadcast and digital content in Sydney and Melbourne and has helped Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation with its annual gold telethon, interviewing patients and telling their stories for the last three years.

Georgia did an exchange to New York in her second year of university in 2013, sparking her love of America.

“I always wanted to get back and work here (America),” she told The Spectator.

When her partner got transferred to Chicago earlier in 2020 for work, she jumped at the opportunity to go with him.

Not long after the move, Georgia realised a production company she had always looked up to and followed on social media, ‘The Mill’ had an office in Chicago, and she reached out to them.

The Mill is a global creative partner for agencies, production companies and brands, working across multiple media channels and has up to 1000 employees at five different studios.
