Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?

We moved to Brisbane when I was about 5 and still live there.

What was your dream job growing up? Is that what you ended up doing?

Inspired by my childhood picture book 'I Want To Be A Shopkeeper', I wanted to be a shopkeeper and/or sell flowers by the side of the road. I went on to study law influenced by one of my greatest influences, my grandmother, who would have loved to study further but didn't have the opportunity to do so.

What is one of your most defining moments in life?

Tough! There's been some key defining moments and decisions over the past 20+ years that have make me who I am today. However, I successfully applied for a job on a whim post university and met my now husband within the first 10 minutes of day one. So many subsequent defining moments are thanks to seeing that random job advertisement.

What are three of your favourite things to do?

(Could be small daily things or bigger loves) I love park run, all things travel and spending time with family and good friends. Your favourite aspect of being in the Leina Broughton Conversations Group In an online world filled with so much judgement and negativity, it's refreshing to have found a safe space surrounded by so many strong, supportive and accomplished woman.

Your “go to” LB piece?

My go is split style Layla with the LB tan belt. However my all time favourite style is Monique. A classic, timeless style and I immediately feel amazing whenever I wear my Monique dresses.

What is your favourite quote?

Work hard, play hard.

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?

An impossible choice as I love music. In the spirit of supporting strong Australian talent - Best Part of Me by Busby Marou. Postcards from the Shell House is a staple album played on any beach outing or family drive and Best Part of Me is my favourite song on that album.

It’s 2020 – what are you choosing to leave behind and what will you be taking forward into 2020, your new year

My youngest starts school in 2020, which highlighted how fast time is passing by. I'll be taking into 2020 a renewed focus on quality, family time and creating happy memories.
