Tell us a bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in New Zealand, making me of Kiwi descent. However I prefer to be recognised as a New Zealand Maori and lived the majority of my childhood living in a small town called Taihape aka Gumboot City (where red band gumboots are your everyday footwear). In March 1997 my baby girl was born over baked and healthy. Becoming a mummy was both overwhelming, exciting and daunting all at the same time, however I wouldn’t change a minute of it. As a solo parent I decided I wanted more for my 15yr old daughter and our future, so made the big leap across the ditch to Roo land back in April 2012. I have lived in Perth, WA then onto Gold Coast, Roma, Springfield Brisbane Qld. Bringing me to where I am based now in North Lakes giving me the opportunity to be a part of Crowd Delivery.
What are your hobbies?
My daughter is my life and my life is my daughter!!! But she grew up and wanted to return to NZ to study at Auckland University. Then my god son twins were born in November, I got to be a part of their birth and so they have filled that void for my daughter. So other than that I’m interested in Music, Sport, Netflix and Socialising. Would love to travel and see the world.
What do you do at Crowd?
I started off as a Hero, then was promoted to a Super Hero and NOW I’m an awesome Legendary Hero!!!
Do you have a favourite grocery store aisle, if so which one?
Most definitely don’t have a favourite aisle, however if I had to chose one I would chose the cleaning aisle because it smells sooo daaamn good especially the washing powder and softener section lol. If there was one thing I could change is to make the the store layouts all the same. Trying to memorise the layout of multiple Coles, Woolworths or Aldi stores is very testing when you’re being Legendary!!!
What’s your favourite driving song?
Anything loud with a lot of boom boom bass, ASAP Rocky – Wild for the Night (feat. Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam) or Pitbull – Feel This Moment (feat. Christina Aguilera) or Major Lazer – Light It Up (feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG) just to name a few. However if I was to choose an artist that gets me blood pumping in the morning it would definitely be Skrillex & Flume!!!
What’s your favourite thing about working at Crowd?
That I LOVE my job. It’s the first job I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a few) that I can actually say I LOVE WHAT I DO!!! And everything about Crowd!!!
What do you do when you’re not at Crowd?
Watch the dashboard (where all our orders are visible) lol, but really most of my spare time I go and spend with my twin nephews who are also my godsons and are 6 and half months, arnee loves their huggles and kithes and gives mummy and sissy’s a break too.
What gets you up in the morning?
Another day another dollar 🙂 Seriously though, I like to keep my housework up to date… Plan for the day ahead or the weeks ahead and keep on top of things and anything that may cross my mind to do with work.
Who’s your favourite superhero?
I love DEADPOOL because he’s an idiot and is hilarious. I can’t wait until the next one comes out… I love to laugh and have fun and this guy does that for me!!!
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
To be able to manipulate time… freeze it, rewind it, fast forward it. The adventures would be endless. Oh, the fun I would have with that hahahaha.
Who’s your hero?
MY DAUGHTER: Not only is she my greatest achievement in life, she’s picked me up when I was down, she’s pulled my head in when it’s been too far in the clouds and she’s kept the embers of my childhood alight within me. She is my life, my all, my everything, my every breath I take because of her, I do what I do for the betterment of our lives even though she is living in Auckland, NZ or soon to be Vermont, USA for 6 months still studying lol. She’s told me she wants to quit Uni and come and work with me hahahaha. No sorry my girl complete your studies, graduate and then you can come work my hub because I should own my own by then… BOOM!!!
Do you have any tips for Crowd customers?
You have free texting so write as much or as little as you want, because the more detail you put in your order the more likely you are to get exactly what you want. Or if you have put in an order please be available to answer your phone or a text mesage so that the amazing hero can communicate with you if need be.
