If you are ever after the perfect wing woman... let us introduce you to Amanda!

Thank you Amanda for your contagious smile, your fun loving approach to the entire experience and for just being you.
Where did you grow up and where do you live now?
I grew up in the south east suburbs of Perth in a place called Gosnells. Our house backed on to a dairy farm though we were only 30 minutes drive from ‘Town’ (Perth City). As a teenager it felt miles from anywhere. I appreciate now all the rich experiences we could have because we were outer suburbia and got that country / city mix.
I still live south east of Perth, but closer to the city. I’m in St James which is a small suburb bordering East Victoria Park and close to Curtin University. It is a great space with lots of single house blocks of a reasonable size.
What was your dream job growing up and is this what your doing now?
I didn’t really have a dream job. I knew I wanted to go to Uni and study something. When in late high school we got given a book that had a whole list of careers in it. I remember thumbing through and had picked out a psychologist or a librarian. Or a dental therapist. I ended up being one of those to start my career.
What is one of your most defining moments in life?
This was a really hard question for me. I made two attempts at the Perth Oxfam Trailwalker 100km walk. The first attempt we pulled out at the 60km mark a very divided and defeated group. We weren’t communicating, we didn’t have the same goals and we hadn’t physically or mentally prepared for the event. I learnt from that and with one of the other Boss Women in the group we reformed with two other ladies and changed our approach. The next year we completed it, and with a small run over the finish line.
What are three of your favourite things to do?
Sing (I’m in a women’s singing group called Poppilons), dance (just whenever) and walking through nature.
Your favourite aspect of being in the Leina Broughton Conversations Group?
I love the culture and vibe of the group. It is a safe and non-judgemental place. I am often blown away by the awesome ladies that are in there.
Your “go to” LB piece?
That is like asking which one is your favourite child! I love the versatility and styling of the reversible dresses. For everyday I like the Stella, and for more special occasions my Aubrey.
If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Brass in Pocket by the Pretenders. But it has to start at “I’m special, so special, got to have some of your attention, give it to me!” (I hope you are ready for the photo shoot day)
And last but not least, your favourite quote?
"Your journey starts at the end of your comfort zone."
