My role within Global Ballooning has evolved over the years and continues to do so as I challenge and encourage myself to educate and develop to be the best professional I can be.
Specific jobs include:
The vibrant people! Enthusiastic, fun & passionate.

Bring your creative food experitise to our kitchen

Describe yourself in three words
Positive, friendly, energetic
I had a trial day at a fashion retail store in Chadstone when I was 18.
Having already working in the fast-faced, hands-on hospitality, industry, this position lacked pizazz and I was bored, being told to 'pretend to fold up clothes' to look busy.
Although I love shopping and fashion, I have kept this as my own personal interest, not combined with work.
If you weren't doing this job, what would you be?
I always saw myself as a flight attendant- definitely aviation for me!
How many times have you been ballooning?
Not enough. 6 or 7?!
In which locations have you flown over?
Melbourne & Yarra Valley.
If you could choose one place in the world to fly over in a hot air balloon where would it be?
Florence,Italy. My favourite city
Enthusiastic about tourism and events, I am dedicated to providing outstanding professional service using my unique skills, passion and drive to keep learning.
I am a naturally positive person and respond to feedback and change extremely well.
Working in a team, I motivate those around me and am seen as a leader with effective communication skills.
Melbourne is my home, my life, I am an amabssador for our beautiful city and embrace it as much as I can.
