How long have you worked at SAH?

23 years I think…

What is the MOST enjoyable thing about your job?

I still love it all – The clients, the animals and especially our team.


Do you have any pets?

3 Cats: Laura, Pink and Megs – and 7 frogs! 

Where is your favourite local place to go for a break?

Buttonquail Junction, feeding parrots in season. But honestly, anywhere in the wild! 


Where would you go for a good meal out locally?

Our kitchen for Kate’s Vege lasagna (chef’s kiss) 

If you could have any animal at all as a pet, what would you choose and why?

Nowadays, I most live vicariously when it comes to pets. I feel like I have a small ownership in every pet that I care for at Sugarloaf
