When and how did you get into the Adult business?
I have always had an interest in the Adult Industry, and about 4 years ago after I was organizing a Hen’s party for a girlfriend and everything I looked at was so tacky and didn’t interest the bride. So this is when I had a thought of creating something for the sophisticated bride in my mind, and because of my love of sex toys, it was just natural to create something I loved.

A typical day
No day is the same for me, that is what I love about my business! Gym and coffee is my early morning start. Around 8am I am checking emails and replying to any party booking enquiries. My day then revolves around organizing my girls for parties, product training, sourcing new products, setting up interviews for new recruits, social media marketing strategy – just to name a few things. By 6pm I am winding down with a glass of wine on the couch with my dogs and man.

The most significant influence in my working career was/is
My Mum, she ran her own business from home and was a really hard-working and caring woman who created the life she loved for her and her family.

I’m most proud of
Not giving up. With any new business venture, there are a lot of bumps in the road, and at times it is very easy to give up and say it’s not working. However, when you are passionate about what you do, that is the motivation that keeps you going.

One of the most memorable moments was
Meeting my amazing partner, Steve.

Last book I read
Gabby Bernstein – May Cause Miracles

Favourite movie/TV show
Sex and the City!!

What would most people not know about me
When I was 19 I left Australia to travel the world on my own for 4 years.

My favorite place
New York City – it has a kind of buzz in the air that I can’t describe!

If I could change one thing
I would change the way society treats animals. Animal testing, breed-specific legislation, and over-populated shelters are all contributing to an issue we cannot possibly solve without major changes. The only way I believe we can do this is through education. Give people the knowledge to make better decisions when it comes to pet ownership. Too many people know too little about animals, and in the end, it’s always the animals that end up suffering. It makes me so sad.
