  1. Are you a morning person, or a night owl?

I’m not a morning person, I love a sleep in (morning coffee is essential)! I find during the week I have a strict routine but on the weekends, I tend to stay up late to catch up on reading, study and my TV shows– I tend to lose track of the time and before I know it, it’s the AM.


  1. Tell us about some of your favourite books or movies, and why you love them? (you can talk about one, or a few)


I’m a little bit of a nerd in terms of fantasy fiction/ancient history based films/TV series so this includes Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Game of Thrones (GOT), Troy, Gladiator, Vikings, Underworld (the list goes on). I believe these types of movies expand the mind and ignite the imagination.


  1. What artist, songs or playlist do you listen to when you need motivation?


Nothing like a bit of RnB, Hip- Hop, 90’s or rap music (old school) to get the motivational vibes happening. I’m one of those people who can’t listen to music whilst I work, but when I’m cleaning the house, driving in the car or at social event I love when tunes are playing (I love a bit of car-pool karaoke ha ha).


  1. What’s your favourite quote or poem? Why?


‘Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard’ which I had no idea originated from Kevin Durant (NBA). This quote does resonate with me, and reminds me if you put your mind to something and work hard you’ll succeed.


  1. What are 3 things still left on your bucket list?


  1. Travel to the US and watch a live NBA game, NFL (college game) and visit NY.
  2. Take a whole group (friends + family) on a skiing/snowboarding trip.
  3. Take my partner/my pooch and take off with a camper van, minimal cash and travel up to the northern parts of AUS.


What’s your #INSPIRATION… What motivates you to show up at work and ROCK IT?


I love my job and everyone that is involved with NBC that includes the partners, staff and clients. It is a very supportive/family orientated environment and working here for over 7 years and still learning, growing each day is a testament to the fabulous company that is Northern Business Consultants.
