Camps Researchers on the Road: Leisa

Leisa has been with us since 2009, as our Technology and Marketing PA.  She handles the design and distribution of the Camps Newsletter that Heatley and I write for you each fortnight and she is also one of our teams’ web designers and created our current app website.

Originally from Queensland, she decided to travel a few years ago, house sitting around Australia and continuing to work for us remotely.

“Once when I was on the road, Heatley called me with some urgent work.  I found a place with internet signal, pulled up under a shady tree somewhere outside Gundagai, sat cross legged on the grass with my laptop, completed the job and was back on the road again!  It’s great that I can pretty much work anywhere.”

Leisa loved travelling around Australia, meeting new people and that feeling of seeing a place for the first time, but the beauty of Tasmania won her over and she eventually bought a little property in the north east of the state.

“The slow pace of life is what attracts me, I love the cold winters and warm fires, and the beautiful scenery – I wouldn’t live anywhere else and it appears my offsider Buddy feels the same,” says Leisa.

“Working for Camps Australia Wide is very rewarding, I love finding new sites and chatting to owners and travellers.  The people I talk to on the phone are always happy – they are  usually on holidays, so hey, who wouldn’t be?”

Leisa doesn’t just check out sites in Tasmania, she is also a member of the team that keeps our database humming along, updating sites and finding new places for you to camp.
