Kym, how long have you been in the hospitality business?  
The hotel has been open for 2.5 years and I've been in the industry for 29 years.

What do you love most about what you do? 
I love helping Brides organise their special day and creating wonderful memories for them.

Do you have a goal you'd like to achieve this year in the wedding industry?
To be recognised for wonderful service and brilliant food. And that we exist in a beautiful location even if it isn’t beachside. 

Is there something you've learnt, working at Best Western Plus Lake Kawana?
Being a more boutique venue we have been able to provide a more intimate atmosphere and so close to the hospital has given me the opportunity to work with many different guests.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get constant inspiration from local suppliers who I spend time with and who wouldn’t love Pinterest.

What’s your best wedding planning tip?
Take good advice but also make it what you want it to be. If you have dreamt what it would be like then try and make it happen.

Kym, where is your favourite beach on the Sunshine Coast?
I love Kings Beach, the view is great and you can get surf or walk a little further for no waves if you prefer.

Where is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast?
Anywhere with a great wine list and a view.

Red – passionate, strong willed and proactive.
