What was the worst job you ever had?

I try to be discerning with the jobs I take. However I did agree to do some house cleaning at Uni - that was probably the most disliked...

Coffee or Tea?

 

Definitely coffee. 10am coffee time is the highlight of my day. Having said that I love freshly brewed tea with a dash of milk too.

What is your fav movie?

 

Walter Mitty with Ben Stiller. Who doesn't love the tag line “to see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel…that is the purpose of life." It's such an inspirational movie with gorgeous characters.

 

What is your favourite time of day and why?

 

Early morning, I love the sunrise, the sound of the birds waking up, the stillness that begins the day. It's just magical.

​You have to sing karaoke, what song do you pick?

 

Any song from the 80s! but probably Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles (not sure who they are but love the song).

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?

 

"Everything in moderation” practical advice from my Mum.

 

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

 

When I was 5yo I drew pictures in chalk on my driveway and asked people who walked by to put 5 cents in the cup next to the one they liked the best, so I think I had entrepreneurial tendencies even then. Later I wanted to be a doctor, then teacher, then photographer and I in my late teens really fancied being a dancer in music videos. Finally reality hit and I became an accountant - hahaha!         


What’s your favourite place of all the places you’ve travelled?

 

Oh gosh tough. We went to the North of Sweden inside the arctic circle in March 2014. It felt like morning all day because the sun doesn’t rise much at that time of the year. That morning glow lasting all day was incredible, I thought I was in heaven. However I would really like to return to Yosemite and hike the back country. Nature is the best.


What is your favourite season of the year and why?

 

Autumn when its cool but sunny.

 

What is the best perk you have ever enjoyed at a job?

 

Ooh this is a good question. I'd have to say having a generous wine allowance when working for a great winery in the Barossa Valley was pretty good.

 

If you could magically become fluent in any language, what would it be?

 

Italian who doesn’t want to immerse themselves in the Italian way of life? However French would be pretty cool too.  Its such a beautiful sounding language.

What was the worst job you ever had?

Ok – that’s a tough one. Picking peaches in the heat of summer while travelling Australia was pretty awful, who knew there were so many spiders in fruit trees.  Also working in a commercial laundry while travelling was difficult, let’s just say I am not cut out for picking lint off hospital surgical sheets.

Coffee or Tea?

 

Both, love a good tea first thing in the morning and afternoon but also love coffee around 10am.  I am one of those decaf, almond milk people that baristas hate.

What is your fav movie?

 

Practical Magic, I have always wanted a crazy family who love mixing margaritas at midnight – WAIT, come to think of it I think I may have raised a couple of kids like that

 

What is your favourite time of day and why?

 

I like to sleep in when I get the chance, so I love the night time.  I am a real moon worshipper, any full moon you will find me out there taking it all in.  

You have to sing karaoke, what song do you pick?

 

It’s raining men – I love a good uplifting shouty song.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?

 

“Be yourself, everyone else is taken.”  Have the faith and belief in yourself to go for whatever you want, feel the fear and do it anyway..

.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

 

Never had great aspirations of being anything, I think I wanted to be a vet at some stage and maybe teacher but hey ho – accountant it is 😊.


What’s your favourite place of all the places you’ve travelled?

 

I have loved Italy, whenever we have gone I have immersed myself in the food (probably a bit too much), the people and the scenery.  Love it and one of my dreams is to live there for 3 – 6 months.


What is your favourite season of the year and why?

 

Love Summer – can’t wait to feel the salt on my skin from swimming and I love the feeling of sunshine on my skin - BLISS.

 

What is the best perk you have ever enjoyed at a job?

 

Haha – I think Ash & I may have worked at the same great winery in the Barossa – loved my wine allowance.

 

If you could magically become fluent in any language, what would it be?

 

French – the language of love.
