What do you do?
I have the exciting challenge ahead of me to try to fill the very big shoes of the lovely Mother Hen, Lynette. Aside from the baking of treats and general charmingness, there is real work to do! I will be the friendly voice to answer the phone when you call and the dazzling smile that greets you upon arrival.
When did you start at Growthwise?
23rd November 2015 - though, after my first interview; I was already invested and ready to get the metaphorical whip out
Describe yourself in 3 words
Vibrant curious driven
Who is your favourite superhero?
Ironman! He is innovative, enthusiastic and a problem solver. I love problem solving and achieving great outcomes- we are practically twins
Why did you decide to do what you do now?
Customer Service has been at the centre of my whole working life- my first job was at Maccas where we were taught to provide WOW service EVERYTIME!- since then, it has stuck with me through everything I've done.
Because of this, there are previous colleagues who renamed me 'The Wolf' (Pulp Fiction) because they knew they could call me to solve their problems :-)
As I've moved through a variety of roles, I've learnt the value of improving processes and harnessing technology to work for you (even though there are times I feel it is working against me)
What is your greatest achievement?
Probably the Mars Bar Mellow Chocolate Fudge I made especially for the team here for my second interview- I'm pretty sure that's why I got hired ;-)
What did you spend your childhood doing?
Reading books, riding bikes, climbing trees and beating my siblings on the SEGA Mega Drive- NBA JAM! Boom shukalucka
Who would you love to have a drink with and why?
Eleanor Roosevelt, she dedicated so much of her energy to human rights, even Truman called her the First Lady of the World – wouldn’t you want to rub shoulders with such a dame?
What's your favourite meal?
At this moment; Main; Roasted lamb in rosemary and garlic, accompanied by baked potatoes, pumpkin and onions- gravy must be made from lambs pan juices- my Grandmas home grown green beans and sweet corn on the cob- do of real butter on top.
Desert; HAS to be hot apple and rhubarb crumble with real custard, French vanilla ice cream scoop on top and a pouring of cream over the lot.
Finale; Latte to complete!
What do you do when you are not at Growthwise?
Drinking coffee, baking, Pinterest!, washing, reading-blogs/ articles of interest/ novels etc, craft, sewing, taxiing kids for playdates and ‘activities’ and drinking coffee.
1 thing you can't live without
My Smartphone! Aside from all the normal non materiel things like kids, family blah- my phone is the one thing I would be thrown into chaos by if I lost it. My memos, calendar, contacts, the fitness app that reminds me I haven’t had enough water today, the internet and all its endless information in the palm of my hand- oh and Candy Crush Soda – I am on level 245(hard level) :-}
