Give us the Scoop on your WHY you do what you do

I do what I do in KLAS  because I am able to use the education and training I have to help the team and clients with their needs. With that, I am always inspired to go to work, and I come home fulfilled at the end of each day.


What is the most ‘Kooki’ or ‘fun’ activity you do at KLAS, I hear you have an ‘email-a-thon’ Monday mornings on the weekends events and that Tenterfield close early for Family time Fridays, what’s your favourite KLAS habit?

I love days off - great time to unwind and re energized!

I do love working with KLAS because of the genuineness of the Team and the unfeigned care not only to the Clients but to all team members. KLAS team will always be real and will always aim for the continuous  amelioration of their valued clients and KLASsy members.

What has been your biggest lesson whilst at KLAS?

You have to be positive every time , take all your difficulties,if any,  as challenges for Self and professional betterment and most of all, have faith in yourself and always do 100% in everything


 Who or what brand are you inspired by and why?

I choose the "WHO". I will always be inspired by my Mom who helped me become the person I am today.  She has her own doubts, problems and fears and how I see her overcome  toughest times and still being able to bring shine and happiness to our family greatly influences how I am living and how I see life today.  She’s the person who helped me develop the  confidence and a sense that I could do anything.
