On Sunday mornings you can usually find me…
Riding bikes down at the beach with my two boys or out in the garden. There’s no such thing as a Sunday sleep-in at our house!
What do you think are the best skills you bring to the job?
Organisation, attention to detail, keen interest and experience “behind the scenes” of residential building.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Get my kids ready and off to school, head to the office and work until 3pm, pick the kids up from school and go through all their homework with them. Do as many jobs as I can and then make dinner. Hand kids over to the hubby for their bath, story and bed. Watch TV or do some gardening. Repeat!
