Full Name: Michelle Jacobsen
Position: Marketing & Membership Team
Location: Margaret River HQ (upstairs in the Margaret River Visitor Centre)
How long have you been part of the team: Since December 2012
Favourite part of the job: Experiencing the amazing member product on offer, and speaking to the people behind the businesses. I love hearing the stories, what makes our members passionate and what inspires them, and helping them to share this with the world. There’s always a sense of pride telling people what I do, this region is a dream-come-true place to work (and live!).
Tell us something about yourself that not many people would know? I have an identical twin sister named Melissa (who is having a baby!), and I am a tragic Bruce Springsteen fan, his Melbourne concert was one of the best nights of my life! I am also a passionate Dockers supporter, I realise this may have alot of you having second thoughts about me as a person 🙂 GO FREO!
Detail your perfect Margaret River Region day: An early morning run between White Elephant and Rivermouth, brekkie with friends at one of the beautiful cafes around the region – Top 3 would have to be Bunkers Beach Cafe, White Elephant, and the Goose (can you tell I love a good view?), a cruise through the forest and down the 4wd track to Boranup beach for some crystal clear water, stand up paddle, a late lunch at Eagle Bay Brewing followed by a sunset beer with mates on a picnic rug at Yallingup.
Every day is a perfect day down south – my dad always said ‘If you are lucky enough to live by the ocean.. you are lucky enough’. We are indeed!
