Describe your job I’m the production manager at Coretext.

I’ve just returned from maternity leave and am easing my way back into the role. When I’m in full swing I manage production workflows and resources for a wide range of print and digital publishing projects. I oversee workloads and schedules for the production and design team as well as our external team service providers

Tell us about the photo you’ve provided 

My family and I went on a trip to Robe in South Australia late last year. We went for a walk to the heritage-listed Obelisk, which was constructed in 1855 to mark the entrance to the bay and also to store rocket-fired lifesaving equipment for stricken ships.

How long have you worked at Coretext?  Almost six years including a couple of stints of maternity leave.

If you weren’t doing your job, what would you be doing? 

I’m always doing my first and most important job, looking after my two daughters! They’re one and three years old and keep me very busy. But if I wasn’t a production manager I’d love to be doing something in interior design or decoration.

Best aspect of your job? 

Definitely the amazing people I get to work with. I love working in such a close-knit in-house team and also forming strong client relationships. As part of a smaller company, I get to do many different things throughout the day. It’s also nice to know we're putting out really important content that helps inform so many people.

Where were you born? 

I was born in Melbourne, well Box Hill to be exact, on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people.

What’s one thing most people would be surprised to know about you?

I used to play the trumpet and once performed at the Sydney Opera House.

What are the best things about where you live now? 

I live in beautiful Warrandyte. It’s so lush and green and it has a wonderful community. It’s wonderful being so close to nature and being able to walk along the mighty Birrarung (Yarra) River.

What are you reading?

At the moment, when I can squeeze in some downtime at the end of the day, I’m reading A Country of Eternal Light by Paul Dalgarno, a wonderful, nostalgic novel by a Melbourne-based writer.

What is your favourite overseas destination?

My family are from Greece and about 20 years ago my sister and I travelled there and visited the tiny village called Morfi where my mum is from, perched in the beautiful northern mountains. The people are very friendly and welcoming and there’s a wonderful atmosphere and appreciation of life. I would love to go back there one day and take my daughters!
