How did your journey begin?

My passion has always been in the hospitality industry with having owned a Restaurant in Melbourne and with over 20 years of experience I found it was time to work for myself again. I found a niche in the Ararat market for a mobile coffee van and decided to design and commerce my own business for the Ararat and surrounding areas.

What’s the favourite part of your job?

The opportunity to meet people and making them beautiful coffee. Not to mention being my own boss

What’s Your favourite part about the Ararat Region?

The beauty of the area such as the Pyrenees Rangers, Mt Cole, Green Hill Lake – the whole country lifestyle really

To meet other like minded people and the networking opportunities.
