What do you do?

I’m the man­ager of the Pore­punkah Pub. I have been in hos­pi­tal­ity all my work­ing life, since I was 16 years old. I have a real pas­sion for the in­dus­try and I re­ally en­joy in­ter­act­ing with peo­ple and help­ing make their ex­pe­ri­ence a great one. I espe­cially en­joy my job when I have been able to ex­ceed cus­tomer ex­pec­ta­tions. I didn’t re­ally set out to work in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try, it just hap­pened. I was look­ing for a ca­sual job when I was 16 and once I started in the in­dus­try, it all seemed to work and feel right, so I con­tin­ued! Work­ing in this in­dus­try has pro­vided me with some great ex­pe­ri­ences, taken me to many in­ter­est­ing places, and I have met a lot of amaz­ing peo­ple, too.

What makes a good pub­li­can?

I be­lieve a good pub­li­can is a per­son who has a pas­sion for what they do, a great sense of hu­mour and a gen­uine in­ter­est in pro­vid­ing cus­tomers with a great ex­pe­ri­ence and a good time.

Where are you from?

I am orig­i­nally from Vic­to­ria, and took some time out to travel around Aus­tralia with my hus­band and we ended up in Mar­garet River, Western Aus­tralia - where we lived for 16 years. As all of our fam­ily are on the east coast, we re­cently de­cided to move back closer to them.When I was a child I would spend Christ­mas hol­i­days here in Pore­punkah with my fam­ily, so I am quite fa­mil­iar with the re­gion. Once we de­cided to move closer to fam­ily, we started com­ing to this area and we re­ally loved it, so here we are! Our plan now is to get set­tled and en­joy this mag­nif­i­cent place!

What are your other in­ter­ests?

I have a real pas­sion for clas­sic cars and an­i­mals. I love the su­per­cars, and also en­joy cricket and foot­ball. I en­joy be­ing out­side, spend­ing time with fam­ily and friends and en­joy­ing good food & wine.
