Each month we are focusing on getting to know one of our team members a little better. This month we ask Kasey (reception/Nutritionist) a few questions to help us understand what makes her tick.

  1. What purchases of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last six months?’  A swing from Bunnings for my 2 year old! This was a lifesaver when parks and playgrounds were closed during Covid-19. She was very excited to have her very own swing. Even more impressed that it was yellow.
  2. “How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success? Do you have a “favourite failure” of yours?”
    My favourite “failure” would have to be completing my Bachelor of Education (Primary) to only work 3 months in schools before returning to University to complete my Nutrition degree. While it felt like I had wasted 4 years and a lot of money I know that it has provided me with so many skills that I can relate to my every day life, my Nutrition patients as well as my administration tasks and working with people. I also got to spend those 4 years with my best friend while studying which was a lot of fun and something I will always cherish.
  3. “What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?”
    I love peanut butter on sliced turkey meat. Don’t knock it until your try it! It’s a great little protein/good fat snack that I can eat on the go. To be honest I love peanut butter on just about anything.
  4. “In the last five years, what new belief, behaviour, or habit has most improved your life?”
    That I cannot control everything! While I still struggle with this almost daily I am trying to let go of the things I cannot control and stop worrying about things before they happen. I have found meditation, breathing and exercise to help me achieve this.
  5. “When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do?”
    Try to ensure I get a good sleep. I can always think more clearly when I am well rested. I also make sure I take my magnesium powder to help aid relaxation and sleep. A good run or gym session, a chat to a good friend, my husband or my mum to get some perspective and developing a plan always help me get back on track. I love lists. Having a goal and steps to get there make me feel calmer and give me some direction.
