Kahla Preston is the Deputy Editor of 9Honey. Her work currently focuses on real-life stories and news, particularly through the lens of women. She also heads up 9Honey's weekly series, How We Met. Previously, she¡¯s written across lifestyle topics including health, style, travel and beauty, along with popular culture. In 2018, she was part of the 9Honey team nominated for a?Mumbrella Publishing Award for their Royal Wedding coverage.
Before 9Honey, Kahla worked at Mamamia.com.au for five years, most recently in the role of Evening Editor; prior to that, she interned at the Sydney Morning Herald and Bauer Media.
A country girl-turned-city slicker, Kahla moved from regional NSW to Sydney to study Journalism and International Studies at the University of Technology, Sydney. In second year, she lived out all her Rory Gilmore dreams by becoming an editor of the student magazine, Vertigo.
Work aside, Kahla occupies herself with travel, caf¨¦/bar/restaurant-hopping, indoor plant-rearing, and trying her best to keep across the pop culture cycle, which results in many a late night of TV streaming or ¡®just-one-more-chapter¡¯ reading.
