FABIAN FABBRO

Chief Groupie Co-ordinator

They say you can take the boy out of the bush but you can’t take the bush out of the boy! Originally from a small country town in Western N.S.W. I moved to the Gold Coast in 2006 to be closer to family and to enjoy the outdoors lifestyle that the GC has to offer.

I have a feeling that this life just may not be enough, so when I’m not working with the team here at TP ensuring Pets around Australia are sporting the world’s best, I’m filling my time with family or out looking for an adventure. The outdoors is my passion and Paragliding, Camping and Mountaineering are just a few of the ways I choose to enjoy it.

Family Pets include chickens, guinea fowl, frogs and parrots and we are eagerly awaiting the day when a fury four legged friend can join us.

 

 

HEIN WESTENRAAD

Chief Mojo Cloner

Racket sport extremist and paddle boarder.

Having grown up next to the cold Atlantic ocean and now to be living on the much warmer Pacific ocean in the Gold coast has reinforced two things for me and that is: I love the sea and I am glad that I migrated from cold to warm and not the other way around. My spare time gets shared between my 2 daughters (Nina & Bella), my mini dachshund (George), paddle boarding and running.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EMMA GIBBS

Administration Assistant

Any time that I’m at home with hours to kill I love to cook sweets! Cupcakes and cakes are definitely my specialty. When I’m not baking I love to head to the beach or jump in the car for a spontaneous road trip with my friends, partner or family heading to the country!

I spent my childhood growing up in the bush camping and riding dirt bikes so whenever I get the chance I love to go back to the country and soak up the smell of the crisp fresh air. It’s where I find I can relax, reset and cleanse my mind.

SHARON BARDSLEY

Finance & Administration Manager

Originally being a beach girl growing up in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, I love spending as much time as I can going for long walks along the fabulous beaches that we have here on the Gold Coast, and stopping for a coffee or 2 along the way. I also have a passion for gardening and love to create wall gardens and have also been known to dabble with a few bonsai plants which helps me to find my place of Zen (well almost).

My time outside work is kept very busy with my Hubby, Twin teenage daughters and 2 cats named Princess and Cymbaline.

 

KIM MARTYN

Accounts Receivable

I grew up in the beautiful Hunter Valley and made the move up to the coast in 2000. I love the lifestyle here on the coast and the best days are spent having swims at the beach, bike rides and cuddles with my 10 year old princess Raffy who is a Jack Russell X. 

Raffy's brother Charlie, who is a blue point Himalayan likes to think he rules our house and yells at us all the time, but we know he loves us deep down.

 

 

 

 

BRENDA HARDING

Accounts Officer

Kiwi from Christchurch NZ, proud mother of one, I have now lived in the Gold Coast for 12 years. Gus is our part-time dog, he is smart, loyal and loves meeting new people when he is out of the yard/stables.  He is still a working guard dog most days.

It’s a  great lifestyle on the coast, with plenty of places to visit close by, great venues with new food and drinks to try.  I do a lot of walking especially round the beach fronts  - always a great view.

JOSEPH FABBRO

Marketing Co-ordinator

In my spare time here on the Gold Coast I try to get out and explore as much as I can. Visiting new places and capturing photographs along the way, from the sand and salt right out to the dry west, although I am still getting used to the beach... I come from a small town in Far North QLD where I have grown up riding motorbikes, going camping, fishing and spending most days with family, good mates and Butch my awesome dog!

 

 

 

 

CATHY MCKINLEY

Inventory Planner

I moved to the Gold Cost from Melbourne in January 2016.  What can I say but the weather (much warmer than Melbourne), lifestyle, beaches and theme parks are sensational, and there is still so much to explore and discover.  Shopping, theme parking, walking the dog, reading, listening to music (very loud), reading and relaxing at home are some of the things I love to do.  Spending time with and watching our beautiful daughter grow always puts a smile on my face.

 

 

 

 

DAVID BYRNE

Product Marketing Manager

I moved to the Gold Coast in 2016, following ten years exploring countries, cultures and cuisines.

While I’m always on the look-out for the perfect ad and pithy slogan, or drinking the ultimate cup of coffee, I spend my spare time enjoying the great outdoors with my family. We’re at the beach a lot, building sandcastles or trying to surf, and plan to explore our new backyard (Queensland and Northern NSW) in the coming years.

I love dogs and look forward to welcoming a four-legged friend into my family shortly.

   

 

 

 

 

DANIEL SAWFORD

National Key Accounts Manager

Anywhere in QLD is where I love to call home, despite several opportunities via work overseas and within Australia QLD still makes me the most comfortable. Whilst appreciating a variety of sports our 8 years spent in Melbourne has definitely converted our whole family into crazy AFL supporters...go Hawks! With our kids now young adults my wife's and my attention has turned to spoiling our newest member to the family, our Jack Russell Maple. She brings amusement and interest into every day.

JOHN WELFORD

Warehouse Guru

I’m from a little village in the UK called Robin Hoods Bay and made the move to the Gold Coast in 2010. The benefit of living on the Gold Coast is the water temperature, because I don’t have to wear a 6mm wetsuit in the surf. I have a keen interest in bouldering which is a form of rock climbing as well.

In my spare time I’m either training for climbing projects, riding my mountain bike or planning the next adventure.
