Staff Spotlight

Bi-monthly we interview a staff member so you can get to know us a little better. Each staff member will be asked the same questions. 

This month we interviewed Renee Smith who is our Marketing & Fundraising Support person.


Why do you choose to work for Cranford Hospice?

Because I am passionate about the work that is done at Cranford Hospice and I like to help others. Our death is just as important as our birth.


If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?

My Grandmother on my father’s side. I never met her and yet I feel a connection to her so I would love to talk to her.


What or who did you want to be when you were little?

I always wanted to be a teacher, but I think that’s just because I was a bossy kid and thought you got all the school holidays off.


What is your favourite thing about working at Cranford Hospice?

The people, the patients, the community. Small amazing, generous, moving things happen every day and it really restores your faith in the kindness of others.


If you were a cartoon character who would you be and why?

Tasmanian Devil – I’m a bit crazy and only have one speed ….. Fast!
