I’m Anna, mum of 2 girls, Emily and Lottie and due with number three in July! Originally from Essex, I moved to Australia for a few months back in 2011 and ended up staying here! We’re currently living in Randwick & I run my own Healthcare Recruitment Agency, Health Personnel; www.healthpersonnel.com.au and connect many allied health staff from the UK and Ireland with roles here in Aus! A lot of my clients offer sponsorship around the Eastern Suburbs which is the best place to be right? As a working mum life is certainly hectic and is about to become a little…

Monday’s Local Mum, Lauren Briggs

Hi, my name is Lauren Briggs and I am a children’s book author and illustrator.  I find so much inspiration for my storytelling and drawings from the surrounding beaches, parks and wildlife.  My new children’s book, Little Pago is about an endangered sea turtle who mistakes floating plastic for some of his favourite food.  I hope that Little Pago will inspire our next generation to turn the tide on plastic pollution and empower our children to value and protect our marine life and oceans. Where and how long have you lived in Sydney’s east? I have lived in the Eastern…

Monday’s Local Mum, Elise Clement

My name is Elise, I was born in France and my passion for travel and adventure led me to move to Australia 17 years ago with my then boyfriend, now husband, also French. Together we have a 6-year-old daughter who loves to make fun of our accent! Motherhood was the catalyst for me to start living more intentionally, to make choices that feel better aligned with what’s most important in this phase of my life. After 12 years working in corporate, I decided to change careers shortly after the birth of my daughter in order to support women’s wellbeing and…

Monday’s Local Mum, Josephine Bridge

Hi!  My name is Jo, I’m an artist and illustrator based in Woollahra.  I live near Cooper Park with my husband Chris and our girls Emily and Annabelle.  My background is in Architecture, but I’ve recently made the decision to focus full-time on my lifelong passions, fine art and botanical illustration. I’m really interested in the native flora of Sydney – through my drawings, I hope to raise awareness of our amazingly diverse local species, and ultimately, help conserve our precious bushland.  I volunteer with the Bushcare group in Cooper Park, and was recently commissioned by Woollahra Council to illustrate…

Monday’s Local Mum, Viva Hammer

This weeks local mum is Viva Hammer who tells us about here family and professional life. I’m a fifth generation Aussie on my mother’s side, and my father is an immigrant, so I can speak local and foreign. My parents lived in Orana Court when I was born, right opposite the golf course on Old South Head Road, although at that time they wouldn’t let people like us join. After that, we moved to Clyde Street, a bit up the hill. My mother’s mother was also born in Bondi, on Flood Street, and after that her family moved to Bellevue…
