We want you to get to know our staff just as well as we do, so each month we are going to spotlight a member of our team and provide some insight into them!
Below are some interesting facts about Keeley Morgan:
1. What books on your shelf are begging to be read?
The Passage by Justin Cronin is begging to be read because I’m half way through but keep leaving it sitting there for too long.
It’s an amazing read so far. It really captures the essence and mood of moments well, and makes you feel like someone who is watching everything live from the outside.
It’s extremely mysterious and I’ve never read a novel written in the puzzle like fashion this one is.
2. What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?
Probably kids/family movies and upbeat punky songs. Both just make me feel really light, happy and silly, which I love as a contrast to how serious everyday life can be.
3. When was the last time you really pushed yourself to your physical limits?
I do a fair amount of person training and that always pushes me really hard. However, I would have to say either a two day walk I did on Fraser Island or The Kokoda Challenge in Brisbane.
I didn’t train for either events. Fraser Island was difficult because it was hot and trekking through soft sand isn’t the easiest, let alone when you’re carrying two days’ worth of supplies as well. Whereas Kokoda just
had so many hills, about half an hour in I didn’t think I was going to be able to finish, but with some team support my entire team and I made it and in good time too!
4. What’s something that amazes you?
It amazes me the amount of opportunity we all have. We can essentially do anything if we try and put in the hard yards, and I think that’s pretty amazing.
5. Where’s your favourite place to take an out-of-town guests.
This really depends on who the out of town guests are for me. If it’s people with children I find going to the Go Karts and having fish and chips on the beach is always a fun crowd pleaser.
If it’s purely adult guests, (unless they were up for something like Go Karts), I would usually just host them at mine for the day and go out to dinner at Paolo’s or Badgers Burgary. Perhaps if the beach is nice
adventuring there during the day as well.
6. What’s your all-time favourite town or city? Why?
I’m torn between Wanaka in New Zealand and Versailles in France. Wanaka has gorgeous views, the most amazing 100% vintage cinema and is close to snowfields, which being a snowboarder I love. Whereas Versailles offers
really amazing and inspiring architecture and history. Versailles also has the most amazing markets I’ve ever been too.
7. What’s the best news you ever received?
This would have to be when my friend that’s like a brother to me visited me with his girlfriend, and they told me they were engaged. I was so happy and I’m such a softie that I cried.
