Oc­cu­pa­tion: Postal man­ager, Kristy Cullen

Age: 42

Mar­i­tal Sta­tus: Dat­ing some­one spe­cial in Gat­ton. Shhh, it’s a se­cret

What have you en­joyed most about your time as man­ager of Gat­ton’s Aus­tralia Post?

Meet­ing all the peo­ple in Gat­ton, they are awe­some. I have made so many friends but I am leav­ing Gat­ton on Oc­to­ber 13 as I have a job pro­mo­tion that I was suc­cess­ful with in Ayr. I will miss ev­ery­one so dearly.

The peo­ple in Gat­ton and sur­round­ing ar­eas have all been so wel­com­ing whilst I have been here.

I want to thank ev­ery­one for be­ing amaz­ing. Gat­ton would have to be the most friendli­est town and I will still come back for Lights On The Hill ev­ery year.

Why did you de­cide to get in­volved with the busi­ness?

I have worked for Aus­tralia Post for 17 years and I love my job. I have been in Gat­ton for three years and loved ev­ery minute of it.

I get to net­work with busi­nesses and meet new peo­ple, which suits me be­cause I am a peo­ple per­son.

Have you met any­one fa­mous and when?

My third cousin is Jon English.

What is your great­est ac­com­plish­ment in life?

My chil­dren, they are the best.

What’s the best ad­vice you’ve ever re­ceived?

If you can­not see the light down the end of the tun­nel, go and light it your­self. What is the one thing you would like to change in the world?

Way more love and less anger.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were and why?

I reckon my age. I’m feel­ing it now. Some days it’s a strug­gle.

What is your favourite hobby or re­cre­ation, and why?

Road trips and pho­tog­ra­phy be­cause I re­ally en­joy them – they make me happy. What is your happiest child­hood mem­ory?

Stay­ing with my nan, she would tell me about the war sto­ries she lived through in Eng­land

What is your favourite place to visit in the district?

Apex Park – it’s so re­lax­ing and beau­ti­ful. What would you do if you won the Lotto?

I would set up a place where young par­ents can go and stay and be ed­u­cated to learn how to be­come a par­ent com­fort­ably, con­fi­dently and in a safe place which will help to break cy­cles.
