5 Quick Questions: Natalie McAuley

Earlier this year, Natalie McAuley came on board with Hidden Door as our Office Manager.

We wanted to find out just a little bit more about what makes her tick.

1) Who’s your hero and why?

At the risk of sounding completely predictable & generic, mum is the word. I’d be lying if I said it would be anyone else. Unconditional love, support, selflessness and always there for me.

I struck gold to have her in my life, and I hope to be half the mother she is to me some day.

2) What would your autobiography be called?

Always Look On The Bright Side

I chose this because I really value all the happy moments and grand adventures life has to offer. We are only going to be on this journey once, so I am determined to do it with endless amounts of belly laughs, my favourite people and a big smile.

3) Describe your life using film titles

This was incredibly hard haha.

Starting as a Passing Stranger, now My Love, Anthony brings out The Best Of Me. You’ll find us On The Road driving Into the Wild every Chance we can.

4) Name three key ingredients to an awesome weekend

As most of my work life is spent in an office I love getting out and about on the weekends, so Nature would have to be number one.

Followed closely by slowing down and taking time to enjoy that first meal of the day, Breakfast is number two.

Lastly, Spending time with my loved ones. Whether it’s my partner Anthony, my family or friends is number three.

Mix them all together and that’s my type of weekend.

5) Netflix or Spotify and what are you enjoying on there most right now.

Although I do love to spend a rainy day on the couch with Netflix I am going to have to go with Spotify. I just couldn’t imagine a life without music as it plays such a huge part in my life.

Currently loving Bootleg Rascal and Ziggy Alberts, I’m also looking forward to the hottest 100 of the decade to play soon for a trip down memory lane & a boogie.
