What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people and hearing their journey in life, where they come from and who they are, their families etc. I find people incredibly interesting.


There is absolutely nothing I dislike about my job – it’s a perfect fit.

You have an accounting background, why the switch?

All my clients were always telling me I was in the wrong business – I was just too much of a people person to be an accountant and I always knew there was something else out there for me.

Where did you grow up and what countries have you lived in?

I’m a country girl and grew up on a big sheep farm in Maldon, Victoria, Australia. I lived in New Zealand for 20 years and managed to pick up a Kiwi husband! I think NZ is as stunning as parts of Europe but a lot cheaper to live. And of course, there are lots of sheep! My favourite part is the South Island – mainly Queenstown. I lived in Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty and used to wag school constantly in Grade 12 to go surfing!

You’re a person who loves to laugh. What tickles you?

I love English humour and laugh a lot at myself. I find people hilarious. My animals make me laugh too – we have a whole menagerie – three cats, a dog, a bird and guinea pigs.

What is your favourite spot?

Basically anywhere near a beach! I love Coolangatta and camping on Moreton Island.

Favourite holiday destination?

Camping on Moreton Island – the beaches, dolphins, snorkelling off the wreck – it’s a great place to get away from it all.

The Tangalooma Wrecks on Moreton Island provide good diving in depths from 2-10m.

Favourite restaurant/café

Olive Grove, Kenmore which is basically my second office – I’m always taking people there. The food is fantastic and the prices affordable.

You’re a big fan of travel, if money was no object, what would be your ultimate destination?

Probably Europe – and Greece – I love the idea of sitting in a little taverna, sipping a glass of red wine and listening to the waves lap the shore…

What is your passion?

To connect people with God and with each other.
