My husband inspires me. He is a good human being. Just a good man. Kind, generous, warm, fun. He is everything.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I do what I can to contribute to cancer research. It is something I am extremely passionate about.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
It’s my dream to have a Maldives holiday. But heading to Italy in a couple of months so that might win!

I take them to Baby in Richmond. I take them to Fitzroy Gardens (where I got married), to see shows in town, and to our house because we love to host.

What are you currently listening to?
My cat’s bell on her collar as she runs around the house.
