Golf, Pickleball (aka padder tennis), cooking/cuisine, gardening, exercise, waterskiing – picnics, reading 

Who is your Brain Hero and why?
My Mum: She was smart, well read and a problem solver. Uncomplicated and competitive, a great golfer who played on single figures for over 40 years. She had old school skills and perspectives; a seamstress, gardener and produced tasty innovative cuisine, the biscuits tins were always full as was the cupboard with preserves and the fridge and the freezer – her days were full and active. Kind and caring, as was my father, they instilled in me how to be a good person and mother 

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I believe in Ārepa – the product and what is stands for.
- Sharing the Ārepa ‘love’
- Helping customers and my competitive edge being challenged. Winning in the courier/delivery vs customer arm wrestles
- I love the Ārepa staff- they are an extremely talented group of individuals who are driven by a common goal. There is such good energy in the office. They also keep me on my toes! 
- Solving other people’s problems
- Establishing meaningful and productive relationships with customers and the sponsored individuals and groups.

National Geographic Photographer

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
‘There is only one job you start at the top……...digging a hole’.

What’s your one mental well-being habit you like to do?
Long walks by water- the lake, the ocean, the rivers

What inspires you?
Seeing grit and determination in others, the hustle and the ‘never-give-up’ attitude
