What do you enjoy about your job?
The variety. Each day is different, and this is one of the things I love about my job. Being a funeral director requires a lot of skill and a dedicated work-ethic. There’s an emphasis not only on respecting the deceased, but also having well-engrained customer service skills, event management and business management skills. Above all, it’s about creating a positive impact in people’s lives, which I love.
How long have you been location manager?
I have been serving as the location’s manager since 2014.
What do you enjoy in your spare time?
Running, Rowing, 4WDing and hanging out with friends and family.
Are there any special community groups you work with or support?
Advance Care Planning: I help educate individuals, their loved ones, carers and healthcare professionals the importance of making an “Advance Care Plan” for the future. This reduces anxiety and improves outcomes for all involved.
R U OK?: I present and do campaigns to inspire and empower everyone to have meaningful conversations and to connect with people who could be struggling with life.
Blue Ribbon: I help raise funds for The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation, which perpetuates the memory of the 159 Victoria Police employees who have died in the line of duty through the support of worthwhile community projects in Victoria.
