Millie Looker

Don’t let her blue eyes and blonde locks fool you — Millie is a force to be reckoned with! She has a background and enormous passion for running events (who doesn’t love a good party?), as well as a secret obsession with spreadsheets and organisation. This makes her the Adelady Data Girl and Event Queen! She first met Lauren and Hayley when she was working at the Leukaemia Foundation and it was love at first sight. If you ever see her driving around Adelaide, please turn a blind eye as she is probably singing (badly) to Beyonce while drinking a coffee the size of her head. Millie has been a fan of pineapples since they were just a food, but loves the fact that pineapples now represent her dream job at Adelady.
