About Me: I’m a Townsville girl! I completed my hairdressing apprenticeship, 24 years ago and can honestly say, I still LOVE it! Life is a crazy, juggle between parenting, running kids to sports and operating a business, but somehow, it works! Weekends see us on the water with friends. Racing across the bay to Magnetic Island or hearing the kids scream with laughter while tubing or wakeboarding is my happy place! I am also a big believer in the Power of Positive Thinking and I embrace an Attitude of Gratitude. Life is GOOD!

Book A remarkable story that demonstrates the power of motivated people! It’s about pushing boundaries, challenging convention and thinking differently to change the world for the better.
2017 Diary I’m a bit old school and still use a paper diary. My closest girlfriend thinks I’m crazy, but she embraces my crazy and bought me this, because she knew I’d love it!
Pen Gift from my cousin who shares my love of all things stationery!
iPhone 7Plus I don’t think I have genuine nomophobia, (no-mobile-phone phobia) but it truly is my link to everything!
Tiffany Charm I bought this at the Tiffany Store on 5th Avenue in New York City!
Tiffany’s Bracelet I have THE most generous and loving friends and family, who gave me this bracelet, key and heart charm for my 40th.
Keyring It’s not very often that a passion and a profession come together, but I’m living my dream every single day. It’s been a whirlwind 16 months since opening Bennett’s Barber Shop and I’m so grateful, that it’s grown so quickly. I’m extremely fortunate to work alongside the most AMAZING, talented and experienced team of staff! For me it’s about the people. I’m truly blessed to do this and call it ‘work’!
Ring Craig had it custom designed and handcrafted for my 40th birthday.
Camera You can never take too many photos!
Vicks my beautiful Grandma introduced me to the wonder of Vicks! It’s more than just a decongestant and can be used as a mozzie repellent, to soothe bites, stop itches and stop coughs. Vicks is magic!
