My role at Inspire is to support Ben and the wider team.
I love being an Executive Assistant at Inspire because I enjoy the diversity of the tasks that the day brings – and no two days are the same. One of my highest values is to help people make progress, so for me, being an EA was a no brainer! I joined Inspire in October 2020 as the first Executive Assistant, and it’s been an incredible journey filled with learning and growth as I really got to make the role my own!
Outside of Inspire
I moved to Brisbane from the Central Coast, NSW on my own 3 years ago for a change of scenery, so naturally I try to spend my weekends exploring all that Brisbane has to offer. My Parents still reside in NSW, so I try to fly down every chance I get.
What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?
My favourite thing about working at Inspire is the fact that there are so many opportunities to up-skill and grow – not just professionally, but also personally. Ben really believes in every single one of us which has been a huge contributing factor to the reason why I wanted to join Inspire.
How did you get interested in becoming an EA?
It happened by chance! I originally started in a reception role in 2016, and then worked my way up to Executive Assistant!
I have been intrigued by the EA role ever since I watched The Devil Wears Prada in 2006 – Can confirm Ben is 1000% easier to work with than Miranda Priestly! LOL

What are some books, audio books, podcasts you recommend?
My favourite podcast is definitely Casefile! I’m a true crime junkie and have been fascinated by true crime since I was a child. I have vivid memories of watching Forensic Files from the age of 5 years old.

Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?
The Sustainable Development Goal that I am most passionate about is Goal 5, Gender Equality. Un.org highlights that while yes, there has been incredible progress over the last few decades (more girls are going to school, and there are more women in positions of leadership), there are still so many challenges that we face. Regardless of where you live, gender equality is a fundamental human right.
