Meet Our Team
Events Planner & Coordinator
Front of House Coordinator
Hey, I’m Claire and I have been working at the Tailrace for a year and a half. I started out as a party host and have since managed to work across the board in most of our departments.
I landed in my current role after graduating from UTAS with a Bachelor of Business, majoring in marketing and management, at the end of 2021. I am so excited to use this position to support our current staff cohort, and all those who will enter our workplace in the future.
This role has a special focus on supporting youth in a positive work environment, working to build confidence, empowerment, and setting them up for the future. I find great joy in helping others to succeed so I cannot wait to see what our youth can achieve!
Big boss, enneagram coach & celebrant.
Hi my name is Sharon and my dream of creating a social enterprise which would provide employment for youth, for people with disabilities came into being through the Tailrace Centre.
I love employing young people from all walks of life and seeing them become skilled, confident and finding their place in the world. I love the diversity of what we offer. From weddings, to conferences, to events, to café, to all things in Kids Paradise. The day to day nitty gritty of life on the floor with young people fills me with incredible joy.
I am part of the leadership team at Tailrace. I am a pastor, a social worker, a marriage celebrant and I love the interconnection between all the roles.
Through hospitality I want to practically champion the work for a more loving compassionate and just world.
