What do you like about being a funeral arranger?
I enjoy making a difference and helping families. It’s my job to ensure that this very important day in their life goes to plan and that the family has a stress-free experience. I love working alongside the people in our team, it’s teamwork that makes a funeral seamless for a family.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
My garden is my happy place where I think and reflect as some days can be really tough but in saying that – I wouldn’t choose any other career. I love my job and the people I work with.
What’s one thing people don’t know about you?
I have Two Fur Babies – Poodle and Beschoodle .I love their unconditional love-when I have had a really sad or tough day I go home and they put a big smile on my face as they are always waiting to see me at the gate.
What do you like about your local area?
I love the climate, I enjoy the heat in summer and the cold in the winter (best of both worlds). I enjoy heading up to the Sunshine Coast for a break and I love the excellent restaurants in Ipswich and the surrounding areas as there is many different cuisines to try.
What’s the most remarkable funeral you’ve ever arranged?
A Service where the everyone got dressed up in superheroes and a family member painted the coffin with this theme in mind. It was an occasion filled with sadness but there was so much love around from everyone for the Family.
