Welcome Ashleigh, our new Deputy CEO. Ashleigh joined us this week with more than 10 years of experience in the community sector:
Q: What is your favourite thing about your job?
A: I really enjoy working in the community sector as it gives me an opportunity to meet a variety of people from all walks of life, each of whom I find has the ability to teach, inspire or motivate me in some way.
Q: What was the first job you ever had?
A: My first job was as a Swim School Instructor teaching beginner swimming lessons to children.
Q: Can you play any instruments?
A: I have been playing the piano since I was 3 years old and can also play the clarinet and guitar.
Q: Where is your favourite place in the world?
A: I love to visit Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, it’s a small little village in a valley surrounded by the Swiss Alps with a 300m-high waterfall in the centre of the village, the local people are lovely and it’s absolutely stunning everywhere you look – you feel like you’re in a scene from the sound of music when your there.
Q: If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?
A: I would love to go to Canada and see the Canadian Rockies mountain range, I also enjoy skiing and Canada has some of the best ski fields in the world so that would also be on my bucket list.
Q: What is one thing you couldn’t live without?
