About Moi: You’ve heard the saying “Behind every great woman (Julie), there is a greater man.” (Me, of course! Ha ha ha!) Even so, I would like to be known as the CEO and Production Manager of Greenpet. I am mainly referred to as the ‘Box Boy’ as I am also responsible for sending the orders out. Our loyal customers and wonderful staff make working at Greenpet a treat! I take a lot of pride and satisfaction in knowing that our Greenpet products have improved the health of thousands of pets around Australia and beyond.
Besides work, I like nothing more than listening to loud rock & blues music, the odd game of golf and watching our son playing sport.

How cute am I?
Little Roxy is 11 years young and weighs only 2.8kg.
She is our trusty watchdog, and lets us know when anyone comes into the office.
She also enjoys showing off her repertoire of tricks – Stay, sit, lie down, spin, dance, roll over and ‘bang bang’ (playing dead)!
Bailey is a QH gelding who loves cuddles and trail rides in the forest.
Mista is a miniature horse and is not only the cutest little fellow, he loves to give you a head rub if you scratch his chest. He has trouble keeping his figure in shape due to his love for eating 24/7.
Tilly is another super-cute miniature horse and is Mista’s best friend. She also loves her food and struggles to keep her tummy-line trim, especially when she constantly steels food from Mista.
Dash is a beautiful QH mare that is 21 years young, and is a very kind and gentle soul.
Phoenix is a wild peacock that wandered onto our property a few years ago and decided to stay. He trusts us and feels safe here now and although we can’t touch him, he loves to sit close to us if we are outside. If we leave a door open, he comes into the house any chance he gets.
