I’m Leah Jay’s accounts manager, which involves paying all the bills for the running of the business – basically, I keep the lights on and the phones ringing. I think it’s rare to find a business that still has such a ‘family’ feel to it even after the significant growth we’ve experienced in recent years. We’re a close-knit group who work well together and support one another on a daily basis.
There really was no life before Leah Jay – this was my first full-time job since completing my HSC, and I’ve been here ever since! My role has evolved over time from administration assistant and reception support to accounts manager. My mother is an accountant and so are my sister and brother-in-law, so getting into the financial/accounting side of things seemed like a natural step.
I’m a self-confessed TV and movie geek – I’m constantly going to fan/comic conventions here in Australia to meet my favourite actors and I’ve also attended conventions in America to meet some more ‘A-list’ celebrities. On one of my most memorable trips, I met some of the cast of Marvel’s The Avengers!
