Lexie Halliwell – Bendigo
Hi everyone I’m Lexie. I have taken up the role to run the Bendigo office. So far the role and the staff have been so great and I am truly enjoying my job!
A bit about me: I have 3 kids, my youngest just turned 9 months but he was born 3 months early so it has been quite a journey. I love horse riding and riding motorbikes, typical country girl sort of stuff. I also love everything rainbow! So if you ever see me on a teams meeting I’ll no doubt be wearing something rainbow or colourful. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
