What makes you tick?
I love a challenge and I like to keep busy. When I’m passionate about something it’s my main focus and I strive to perfect it. My life philosophy would be based on life is too short to wait until tomorrow. I’m quite an impatient person so I like to try new things.
What’s one of your most embarrassing moments?
The list is so very long but one that stands out would be when my husband and I were about to take off on an international flight to LA. I had bought myself a neck pillow that had a really annoying tag on it, so I thought I would rip it off. When I did, it tore the pillow – exploding thousands of little white Styrofoam balls absolutely everywhere!
Describe one of your most life-defining moments?
I’ve had many life-defining moments, from my overseas travels to different jobs I’ve had including working on a mine site, as a stewardess on a luxury motor yacht, working in an architecture firm and owning my own businesses. Another would be having children, which has shaped me in ways I couldn’t have predicted. I look back and feel very lucky to have experienced all those adventures that have contributed to making me who I am today.
What are you passionate about?
Interior decorating. I walk into any room and start decorating it in my mind. My business, House of Caicos, is a direct reflection of that passion. I’m able to purchase products that showcase my style and assist people in decorating their homes. I love making my customers happy.
What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
My favourite thing to do is spend time at the beach paddle boarding and hanging out with my family. My daughters Frankie (6) and Gwen (5) are at an age where they have to be kept busy at all times so the outdoors is great for that. Oh and redecorating my house, much to my husband’s dismay!
How do you imagine your future self?
I’m currently working really hard on my business and also working within my husband’s mining business so everything is very full-on at the moment. A vision for myself would be to grow my business to a point where I have freedom to take it in any direction and travel while it’s in operation. A massive goal for me is to take my kids overseas to experience another way of life for a period of time while they are young and easily influenced. I think that would be an amazing gift for them.
