Tell us about yourself and your jobs.

I work as an Office Manager at a Software and Electrical Automation Company in Hallam.

What do you love the most about your jobs?

I love the fact that this business treats all their employees like family, and they too are a major sponsor of this day and have been very supportive of this fundraiser for a number of years now.

What has been your most memorable moment during your jobs?

I loved working in London for 2 years when I was younger on a working holiday visa, and also working at a couple of start-up recruitment companies and helping to build them into profitable businesses.

If you were an animal, what animal would you be?

Probably a cat – I like to curl up on the couch and sleep!

What were you like as a kid?

A bit of a tomboy – loved going to the footy and the farm with my Dad!

Which six dinner guests, dead or alive, would you invite to dinner?

This is easy – my sister and my Dad– who have both passed away, then my Mum, my niece and nephew, and my brother in law – so we could all have one more family dinner together!

What three words would your friends use to describe you?

Loud, generous, loving.

What would you do on your perfect ‘day off’?

Sit by the pool in the sunshine, with friends, relaxing!

Where is your happy place?

Gold Coast.

If you had to compete on MasterChef, what dish would you cook?

Lasagne – not sure why as I am not a great cook, but everyone seems to love my lasagne!

Where is your dream holiday destination?

New York – can’t wait to get there one day!
