A LOVER OF ANIMALS, TRAVEL, CHOCOLATE AND LIVING A POSITIVE LIFE.

When asked, if you could be anything in the world, what would you want to be?  My answer is simple, 
Happy! 

I am 
The Founder of The Kindness Collective, Operations Manager (volunteer) at Global Village Housing and a modern Civil Marriage Celebrant.
Previous to this I spent almost 10 years working in marketing and events in the Radio industry.     
Brisbane has been my home since the day I was born (in the mid 80’s), however my love for travel has taken me to some amazing places around the world. 
The travel bug got me at a young age, I was seven when I went on my first big overseas adventure with my family....and ever since then I haven't been able to keep my feet on the ground for too long. 
I have been very fortunate to see so many incredible places around the globe and meet people from all walks of life. My adventures that inspires my creativity and drive to live a life that is positive and gives back to the world as much as possible.
That same first big overseas trip opened my eyes up to many issues around the world; including homelessness and poverty. So ever since then I have been a part of community projects, volunteering programs and fundraising activities. This is also thanks to a strong influence from my parents, as they have always been heavily involved with many wonderful organisations.   
My top three pieces of advice: 
Have fun, life is too short 
Make a positive impact with all you do.
It's never too early to eat chocolate; as chocolate starts the heart.
