My journey in radio, so far?
Having spent 8 years in Breakfast Radio getting up very very early, the new change to Afternoons has been a blessing. I love radio and am finding my new role as a newsreader such an enjoyable experience. Before I started in the Breakfast shift I studied Journalism at Uni, but haven’t had the chance to use my degree until now! After having our baby, Jaxon, my life has changed so much and this new job is such a blessing!
The best thing about the Coast
I’ve grown up on the Gold Coast and there are so many things that I love. I love seeing the area grow, whilst still retaining the good old places that were part of my childhood.
Burleigh Heads is such a beautiful area. Robina Town Centre is an amazing development for the Gold Coast.
And I am a bit of sporting tragic so the introduction of the Titans and The Suns has brought us so much.
I’m still friends with a lot of people who I grew up up here on the Coast, its so wonderful to still be surrounded by people who knew you when you were in Grade 8!
What's the highlight of your career so far?
I’m a Will Ferrell tragic, so interviewing him twice so far has been a definite highlight. Meeting Bono was also one of the coolest moments in my life; after the interview I watched their sound check with only about 20 other people at ANZ Stadium... yes I did cry.
My perfect day off
Spending time with Jaxon and my husband, Paul. A perfect day would be having a bit of a sleep in (lucky for us Jaxon loves his sleep) and then heading out to Breakfast together. Then catching up with friends and maybe catching a movie. I don’t mind what we would do, just as long as we are together, that’s all that’s important!
Likes: I love coffee, wine, movies and time with family and friends. There is nothing like an afternoon surrounded by friends and family, chatting away on our balcony and watching our little boy discover new things.
Dislikes: I have a real problem with rudeness and arrogance.
I also don’t like the people at the lights who come up to you trying to clean your windscreens!
