Shayla's About Space adventure began with a tip from a friend about a full-time showroom assistant position. Armed with a degree in interior architecture and a love for customer service, she saw it as the perfect opportunity to merge her two passions. With enthusiasm, she reached out to the showroom manager, setting the stage for a journey that would be nothing short of extraordinary.
Starting as a showroom assistant at our St Kilda Showroom, Shayla quickly fell in love with lighting. Eager to take on more challenges, she seamlessly transitioned from learning the ropes to setting her sights on a project-related role. Shayla's dedication and proactive approach didn't go unnoticed, and she achieved her ultimate professional goal at About Space—becoming a Business Development Consultant on the commercial team! Her story is a testament to the power of perseverance and self-belief.
