Leisel has been recognised for her hard work, dedication, and passion after stepping into the role of Community Manager in 2022. Leisel has established a great rapport, created genuine relationships with residents and has the ability to bring people together. Leisel effectively implemented Hometown Australia’s yearly calendar of events and was a key contributor to the successful delivery of the Hometown Australia State of Origin Bowling Competition.
The three-month long competition is held across New South Wales and Queensland with the Grand Final Event Day held at Sunrise. Hometown Australia supports residents in living an active and social lifestyle where they are able to meet like-minded people and feel a sense of community. Leisel and the Sunrise team achieved this at the State of Origin Grand Final Day hosted at the community creating a day filled with comradery, laughs, and new friendships. Congratulations Leisel!
