  Eilis Grainger, Social Media Coordinator
I’m Eilis, 20 years old, a Media and Communications student. Being able to do social media for an organisation dedicated to the lives and wellbeing of animals is such a great opportunity to me, because learning about and helping to create stories for rescue animals is so cool and inspiring. Unfortunately the closest I’ve ever come to a pet of my own is the sea monkeys I had in my room when I was 8, but just wait until I move out of home! Wherever there are cute animals, you can be sure to find me on the ground playing with or cuddling them.
Joni Freeman, Website Coordinator
With a background in digital marketing and non-profit sector, Joni joined the Maggie's team in 2016 to help create the new website. Originally from Canada, she now lives in Sydney's leafy green north and dreams of having a yard and a dog – but is loving her foster cats in the meantime! 

Miriam Martin, Office Manager
I started working in the office of Maggie's Rescue in May 2015. I've dipped my toes into the fostering game too. Here's the two I've adopted – BeeBee Buzzfeed and Dusty.


Elisha Wadick, Pet Profiles Coordinator
A Maggie's volunteer since February 2014, Elisha writes ads by day and is responsible for editing and managing our pets' online profiles in her downtime. She lives in the Blue Mountains with her two rescue cats, Pringle and Deo.
