What do you love about liv­ing in Myr­tle ford?

Myrtle­ford is a beau­ti­ful place to live and Ican alm ost guar­an­tee I would al­ways come back here.

There are a va­ri­ety of out door ac­tiv­i­ties you can do, in­clud­ing my favourites; walk­ing up the bush, tak­ing in the scenery and also spend­ing tim e with friends down the river dur­ing sum­mer. I also love that it’s a small town com­mu­nity and that the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple know each other and tend to look out for one an­other.

What is your job?

Iwork ca­su­ally at Rubys Take­away but I’m also work­ing part tim e at Restora­tive Health, cur­rently study­ing my Diploma in Re­me­dial Mas­sage.

What brought you to this role?

I’ve al­ways had an in­ter­estin the health sec­tor but I was just never re­ally sure which path Iwanted to go down. Af­ter book­ing in for a mas­sage and get­ting talk­ing to An­nie( my now boss) about what I wanted to do with my life, she de­cided to take me un­der her wing and of­fered me a trainee ship in Re­me­dial M as­sage Ther­apy, which I couldn’t refuse af­ter go­ing to the Mas­sage In­tro­duc­tory week­end and lov­ing it.

What do you en­joy most about it?

What I en­joy most about Mas­sage Ther­apy is that it has a holis­tic ap­proach and that it has al­ways been a pas­sion ofm ine. Liv­ing m y life and heal­ing m y body through nat­u­ral rem edies has al­ways been a pas­sion of mine. I love us­ing es­sen­tial oils, ‘try­ing’ to eat healthy most of the tim e and keep­ing up with m y fit­ness. Af­ter com plet­ing m y Diploma in Re­me­dial M as­sage I would like to con­tinue to ex­pand m y know ledge in natur­opa­thy.

What is a sig­nif­i­cant cur­rent is­sue that Myr­tle ford faces?

Short­age of jobs, be­cause Myr­tle ford is such a sm all­town m ajor­ity of peo­ple have to travel to nearby towns for work, but that’s the joys of liv­ing in a sm all town I guess.

W hat’s the most sig­nif­i­cant world is­sue to you?

Poverty, see­ing peo­ple less for­tu­nate then m e breaks m y heart, es­pe­cially young chil­dren. W hen ever I go on hol­i­days I try m y bestto visit an or­phan­age orm ake a con­tri­bu­tion in any way pos­si­ble.

Ifyou could get any­one in the world to com e visit Myr­tle ford who would it be?

Iwould bring m y older brother and his girl­friend back ,it’s not the sam e with them liv­ing over 3000km s away, and they al­ways kept things in­ter­est­ing.
