My role in industry:

I have been working at White’s fisheries in Drysdale for around 5 years, now, after working at Pumpkin Patch, the kids’ clothing store. I pack fish (as you can see me doing in this picture) and work in the retail side of things in the fish shop.

What I love about my industry:

The freshness of the fish – it can be caught and then an hour or two later you could be buying it for your dinner. Certainly, there are a lot of health benefits to eating fish. I enjoy the customers, too.

What’s it like being a woman in the industry:

Pretty equal, we’re treated equally.

Favourite moment:

Getting my photo taken with Matt Preston, the celebrity chef!
