WHERE DO YOU TAKE VISITORS WHEN THEY COME TO THE COAST?
Caloundra Markets always a favourite on a Sunday with friends.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED ON THE SUNSHINE COAST?
We have lived on the Sunshine Coast for ten years, but for five years prior we had a holiday unit here too, weekends and holidays have always been spent her on the Sunshine Coast. In the early years of our Maroochydore Sunshine Plaza store's development we used to head up from the Gold Coast every Friday night with the three kids, and drive home every Sunday. It got to the stage where we realized how well the Sunny Coast suited raising a growing family, and we made the easy decision to relocate here. It was definitely one of our best decisions.
WHY DO YOU LIVE HERE?
On a really basic level, the beaches and fresh air are a huge part of the appeal. The lifestyle is laidback, but at the same time, there are some incredible, innovative businesses here, and people doing extraordinary things. The combination of these elements make the Coast a fantastic place to do business, raise a family and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON THE SUNSHINE COAST?
I really love Caloundra. In particular, Kings Beach and Shelly Beach. There are so many fabulous places to walk Charlie our dog, go bike riding with the family, or meet friends for coffee or lunch. We should never take for granted how clean, safe and beautiful our part of the world is.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ON THE COAST WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Access. I'd love to see a first class public transport system which includes a modern light rail network to complement our bus link network - and maybe some advancements on our Sunshine Coast airport. People are increasingly coming here to holiday and live, and it would make the experience of getting around so much easier for visitors and locals.
CAN YOU NOMINATE A DAY IN YOUR LIFE THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A TURNING POINT? WHY WAS IT A TURNING POINT?
The day we signed our first big lease at Australia Fair Southport. I went from running my own beauty room within a hair salon, to a large retail store with a long lease commitment.
YOUR GREATEST REGRET?
Not backpacking around Europe when I was young. I still intend to travel, but backpacking is out of the question now - I can't quite imagine myself on the top bunk in a crowded hostel any time soon.
WHAT ACHIEVEMENT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
My family makes me feel proud every single day. I know it sounds cliché, but it is the absolute truth. They are my reason for everything.
WHAT FRUSTRATES YOU THE MOST?
TEA OR COFFEE?
Peppermint Tea especially T2 - with tea bag left in. Not to be too particular.
