Amanda has always been a keen sportswoman, with a particular interest in orienteering which she took on competitively. Adventure and travel are clearly a passion as career choices after high school included joining the military, working for an airline and then finally travelling to Australia to pursue studies in fitness. Amanda joined the NCVS team in 2015 and, luckily for us, reports “I love a busy workplace!” Her skills in taking on and mastering the myriad of duties involved in reception and administration are impressive when you consider she has done all this while becoming fluent in a new language! Amanda’s goal is to continue to study and to become a permanent resident. “I just love Oz, I love the weather and the people here!” After hours, Amanda can be found outdoors training for sports events, camping, and enjoying all that the Sunny Coast has to offer.
