Meet The Team ~ Makaylah
27 December 2020
Every month we will shine the spotlight on one of our staff members.
This month the spotlight is on Makaylah Luchterhand, she is a Supported Independent Living Client Liaison Officer. Makaylah has been with Breakaway now for just over 3 months.
We asked Makaylah a few questions to get to know her a bit better.
- Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I am an animal lover, particularly my two puppies. I love to make people laugh, you will very rarely catch me without a smile on my face! I never stop talking, anyone in the office will tell you that. I recently graduated from USQ with my bachelor of human services, although on the side I love all things beauty and makeup related, makeup is the only sort of art I’m any good at. I’m a chatterbox so if you see me floating around the Breakaway office say hi!
- Are you messy or organised?
I’d like to say organised mess
- What did you do before you joined the Breakaway team?
Whilst I completed my university studies I worked as a youth worker in residential care.
- Do you prefer sweet or savoury food?
100% sweet! I always have a stash of choccies or cookies on my desk
- Where would you like to go on a dream vacation?
Europe! Specifically Greece
- If you were stuck on an island, what three things would you bring?
I couldn’t go anywhere without my puppies Macy and Greg, so I would take my two dogs and bug spray, I’m terrified of bugs.
- Where is your favourite travel spot?
I love to travel but so far the simplest trip has been my favourite, camping at Stradbroke Island
- What is your favourite part about working for Breakaway?
The amazing team environment, I haven’t gone a day at work without having a laugh with our amazing team! But also seeing the incredible impact our organisation has on the lives of our clients, I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing, hardworking organisation.
