What is your role at Tahitian Lime?
I am the head designer. Brooke and I both design but I would say I am the perfectionist with each style being exactly how we want it to fit with each particular body type. I am the matchmaker... helping our customers find the perfect look and fit for their body shape.
What is your typical day like?
I have a four year old son, so when I am not busy with him or on his Preschool days you'll find me in our tropical Port Douglas store meeting our rockin’ customers and fitting them for their perfect suits. I love doing shop 'try ons' and playing around with Boomerang videos so our social media family can see what suits & clothing are like on.
Have you always been a swimwear designer?
Ha no! …. I was a zookeeper for over 8 years! My sister Brooke and I were talking about starting a Swimwear brand for many years and it wasn’t until she moved up to Far North Queensland that we knew we had to do it now or never, and 5 years on we are kicking our goals!
We hear you are a mad Animal Lover?
YES! Absolutely! I always have been. We grew up on a farm and our best friend and neighbour owned a private zoo so we were always around animals and getting to know their personalities. Brooke is always laughing at me because if an animal needs me, I’m there! You can really judge a person's true colours by how they treat animals. When we started Tahitian Lime, our mission was to of course create beautiful vibrant swimwear but to also give back to the Animal Kingdom and we have stayed true to that since the beginning.
What’s next for Tahitian Lime?
To create an equally amazing clothing line, help more animals…and oh I don’t know – World domination ha!
