Q: Why did you leave Blackmores for Australia Post despite the lower paycheck?

"The absolute reason why I chose to join Aus Post [sic] was to help make an impact on our community, a positive one. Did you know the most dangerous job in Australia is being a postie? Nearly half of workplace deaths and injuries were from posties and when I heard this I thought this needed to change... Your workers are essential: when times are rough your shareholders leave you, then your customers, but never your workers, they stand by you and stick it through and that's why you've got to fight for them too"

Q: What was the hardest time of your life and how did you overcome it?

"A few years ago my sister died from cancer and this shook me greatly... Sorry, I don't know why I still get choked up about it to this day"

Q: What is your leadership style?

Tough love

Q: What does your average day look like

I wake up, check my emails and then it's just meeting after meeting
