Owner of Miss Macie Coffee & Events
Suburb: Kalynda Chase
AKA: Mel, Mummy
I’m renowned for: Being honest, caring, loyal and respectful.
Only a local would know… that Miss Macie can be transformed from a Pop Up Café to Pop Up Bar for weddings and celebrations.
My most memorable holiday was… so many lovely memories from all of our holidays from Magnetic Island to overseas. I really love Japan.
Right now I wish I was… right where I am… I am really happy and content.
My favourite day is: Saturday. The day we get to have a sleep in and hang out as a family.
The biggest influence in my life was/is: Growing up, my Mum. She raised me from a young age on her own. She worked three jobs to support us. She instilled in me hard work and integrity and I can never thank her enough for the sacrifices she made. On a daily basis, my husband Dave and daughter Macie. Dave has a strong work ethic and is so supportive of myself and the business, I really admire him for this and his wonderful qualities, I am one lucky girl! And my daughter Macie who is full of life and character, she’s constantly making me laugh with her quirkiness!
The funniest thing that ever happened to me was… Skiing in Japan my daughter went flying past me, I’m yelling to slow down and she slams into another skier. I ski over to help and fall over too! Thankfully the snow is like powder, so no one was hurt, although my pride was a little bruised! We laugh about it now!
Someone famous I met was: My Grandad played soccer for Australia and NSW and cricket for NSW.
My motto is: We only live once.
