Story from the road: Many moons ago- Working night shift on the Great Western Highway at Eastern Creek 2 of 3 lanes taken out for an RMS job. A carload of teenagers sped past at just a touch over 40 Roadwork. Next thing I knew, a glass V bottle came flying out of the car and hit me fair square on the hard hat. It then bounced onto the road and did not break. It was sealed. It was a blue V. I drank it. I was happy. PS: PPE is important!

Story from the road: It was an extremely hot day in Western Sydney, 40+ degrees on an asphalting job, and we were in a suburb that didn’t have the best reputation in Sydney. All day myself and my crew was copping it from the locals, abuse, things being thrown at us, the whole lot. We were all over it and looking forward to heading home. Then, in the mid-afternoon a hero emerged.
A teenager, he would have been about 16ish, rode his bike through site with these shopping bags filled with ice cold Powerade’s and was just handing them out to all of us. He started at one end of site and by the time he reached the other end he was met with cheers and shouts of thanks. It turned our day around and showed us that not all hero’s wear capes, some of them have bags of Powerade.
Favourite location you have worked? Callala Bay down in the NSW South Coast for an away job doing Asphalt. It was mid-summer so the days were hot and long, but at the end of each day we would all hit the beach before heading back to our hotel. Nothing kept us going like the thought of those waves after work.
What are you doing when not at work? You will find me either in the kitchen cooking up an absolute storm or exploring around our home in the Blue Mountains with my husband and our two dogs.
What’s your TV binge go-to? Either Star Trek, The Office (US), Parks & Rec, Ru Pauls Drag Race, Police Ten 7, or Binging with Babish (YouTube).

Story from the road: It was my first shift ever with my mother! My mother was training me on all things traffic control. It was an asphalt job and it was a large one. It was a really hot day and the type of work made it no easier. We were functioning a stop slow when I was attacked by a bee with a full line of cars. Being allergic to bees, my survival instincts came to play and I started to swing the bat like it was a tennis racket. Eventually the bee decided to leave me alone but the whole line of cars were looking at me as if I just lost my mind and was swinging the bat for the fun of it. Not to mention the crew laughing at me from afar! From that day on every time we worked with that crew they gave me a nickname of Novak because of how I was swinging that bat. Safe to say it was a hilarious introduction to the industry.
Favourite location you have worked? My favourite location was at Lower Portland surround by large trees and mountains. Something about the air quality just made it enjoyable and calming not to mention the amazing residents.
What are you doing when not at work? I spend my time surrounded by either family or friends. I enjoy downtime and exploring. I part take in community environments and spend time designing fashion every chance I get.
What’s your TV binge go-to? I don’t spend much time watching TV as I’m more of a reader! But if I were to choose a few it would be Ru Paul’s Drag Race, anything with David Attenborough, and Real Estate shows.
