Megan Marano

I’ve been a photographer for 26 years and what started as a love of ‘moments', transformed into a love of people. I use humour and warmth to help my subjects feel relaxed and comfortable at a shoot. I believe great photography is more to do with connection than anything else. I strive to create ‘real' connection with my subjects, capturing more than what they look like but the essence of who they are. With 3 grown children and one teenager I know that our days are long but the years are short. Life is ever-changing and needs to be documented and celebrated.

When I’m not shooting, you’ll find me in my garden or cooking and enjoying food with family. Home is my favourite place to be.

Anna Walsh

Anna Walsh is an ex-parliament, ex-government, ex-police officer, current feminist writer, equality activist, entrepreneur and host at A Woman Charged Podcast.

Frustrated by engendered stereotypes and attitudes around women and sex, Anna created sexual wellness brand happymash: an online space where women feel comfortable learning about and celebrating their bodies.

Anna devotedly advocates that sex is a vital part of every woman’s health throughout her entire life, and that every woman should know how to access her body’s ability to give her pleasure. Through her debut range of vibrators for women, Anna introduces The Know Yourself Range to Aussie women, encouraging them to get to know themselves intimately, and ultimately “close the orgasm gap”.

Anna’s intention to close the pleasure gap extends to her social enterprise Pleasure Able whereby she is undertaking research and development into a bespoke pleasure product for people with disabilities to eradicate pleasure ableism - orgasms for all!

Kylie Maher

Hi, my name is Kylie Maher and I am a Townsville based personal stylist, a mother of two incredible little humans and wife to an amazing and hardworking man.

I have been a stay at home mum for the last 9 years, and have had two hobby businesses during this time, but since turning 40 I have finally figured out what it is that sets a fire in my belly, and that is fashion. I absolutely love all things fashion and the confidence clothes can bring you. This is what led me into studying a Certificate of Personal Styling at Australia’s leading style institute (Australian Style Institute) and launching my own business Kylie Maher Styling.

It is my absolute passion to help and improve confidence in as many Men and Women that I can by making them look and feel amazing.

I understand our climate and the lifestyle we live here in NQ and cannot wait to launch the full range of styling packages in January 2022. It’s an exciting time and one I am ready for.

Paula Pool

Hello I’m Paula !!

Personal trainer for almost 20 years. My journey started when my now husband asked me to marry him. I was 30kg over weight, a packet a day smoker and exercise was a dirty word to me.

Fast forward…. After winning Queensland and Australian titles in body building I then switched to endurance sport. Completing my first half Ironman in sept 2020.

My work life consists of helping woman mainly around that menopausal age to get stronger in the gym. Which then makes them stronger at home and in life in general. 

As we age it’s very important to keep our bodies strong, to help with the hormonal changes we face. I am a massive advocate for weight training for all ages. Especially over 40. I love learning all about what happens to our bodies while we age, and how strength training and exercise plays a big role in how we handle that process.

I also am a part owner of a supplement store Fit Empire and Wellness where we provide supplements for performance, recovery and wellbeing.

My home life sees me a mum of 2, with and very loving and supportive husband.

Paula also founded a charity.

With all this I also run Fuel For Schools not for profit charity with my best mate Melz. We started in 2015 supplying junior schools with back packs then in 2019 we wanted to help the senior schools. After doing some research we discovered that breakfast clubs were a little hit and miss so we reached out to schools to see if they needed a hand and with a resounding YES; Fuel For Schools was born. Becoming a fully fledged charity in 2019. We rely on public donations and also support from organisations and businesses within the Townsville region. We are super proud of our charity and each year we see it grow a little more. We have lots more to do and many more kids to help. Our ethos is Fueling the future and let’s help break the cycle for these kids.
