Dalby’s very own queen of cheese
Teddie talks pink dragons and yes, cheese
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Margot Robbie because we are both from Dalby and I’m sure she also loves cheese and I’m allowed to have creative licence, aren’t I?
What do you think the greatest invention has been?
Raclette Grill – a Swiss invention to grill a 3kg half wheel of cheese and scrape off the freshly melted cheese for a delicious snack. I have two of these for the cheese van.
Do you have any lucky items, objects or traditions?
Bear Bear, my childhood teddy. I couldn’t really call it Teddy, that’s my name after all.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
Cheese and chocolate fondue – what a party starter! I think we can bring this back.
What three things do you think of most each day?
1. What cheese to get for the weekend.
2. Medications and my patients’ health. No room for mistakes in my day job.
3. My list of things to do. Definitely a list person.
What’s been the best decision you’ve made in your life so far?
Throwing caution to the wind and starting my own business – C’est Cheese on the go. It’s hard work but so exciting following a dream and showcasing amazing artisan cheeses.
The look on peoples face when they try a really nice cheese is worth it.
If you could replace one body part with a super bionic replacement, what body part would it be and what features would the new bionic replacement have?
Non-trip legs. Mine are very clumsy sometimes (I don’t send a postcard on all my trips) or just a bionic non-clumsy body.
My hands and sharp knives don’t go so well together sometimes.
What was your first car, or what would you like it to be?
The Pink Dragon. A pink Hyundai XL from the early ’90s, which got its name because the aircon breathed smoke and the muffler would fall off or just sound impressive, so it roared.
What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?
Dishwasher – first-world problems are washing dishes. Running a food trailer also requires lots of washing up.
What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?
No point looking in the past. I want the future when hopefully travel will be faster and easier, so I can see more of the world.
