Joanne joined our team in 2020 after the global Corona Virus pandemic, after excelling in an operational role during these times. COVID-19 was an horrendous time for everybody but Joanne was described by her colleagues and our customers as a shining light with her positive and “can do” attitude.

Joanne has vast experience in Marketing and Operations, therefore we have combined both roles which has enabled her to prosper in both roles that she enjoys.

Joanne is now responsible for all of our Social Media marketing and also works alongside Georgie in the Operations department, assisting with rosters, staff management and liaising with clients.
