I am brand new at BCNA- I joined the wonderful and enthusiastic Marketing team in May. So far I have been truly impressed by the motivation of everyone in our office, all working hard for a good cause, but always with a smile
Firstly some background about me- I’m a country bumpkin from regional Victoria. I grew up in Cathcart out near the Grampians, on a small farm with my parents and three brothers and moved down to Melbourne a few years ago for uni.
I thought I’d tell you what lead me to BCNA. While I don’t have a personal breast cancer story, I do have my own cancer experience. My Dad died of Oesophageal cancer 2 years ago just before I turned 20. It was beyond devastating. We are a very close family and all of our worlds were turned upside down forever.
After this experience, I knew I wanted to spend my time being part of something worthwhile, an organisation that strives to help and support others who are experiencing hardship. That, hand in hand with the colourful nature of media and marketing has led me to my exciting new role at BCNA.
And yes, I am very EXCITED to be part of the team…..and hopefully I will get the chance to meet some of you guys soon!!
