Adshel’s ‘Who is’ Melanie Lindquist?

Adshel is full of fun and quirky individuals and we pride ourselves on our awesome talent. So, this month we’ve tapped into our head of partnerships ‘Melanie Lindquist’ to find out what gives her goosebumps.

So, who is Melanie?

  1. Name one thing on your bucket list.
    Stay in a glass igloo in Iceland and see the Aurora Borealis
  2. What makes you happy? What gives you the warm and fuzzies?
    I love animals but i LOVE pugs. If I was in a room full of pugs, I think I would burst into happy tears. They are such loveable, snorty, squishy, gorgeous creatures.
  3. What gives you (scary) goose bumps?
    Spiders. I have tried to overcome this ridiculous arachnophobia by eating a baked tarantula in Cambodia. It. Did. Not. Work.
  4. What or who is the greatest love of your life?
    My family. They are the greatest (full stop, no question).
  5. What is your most treasured possession?
    My health.
  6. Where is/was your favourite holiday destination?
    So far, the tiny town of Cádiz on the southwest coast of Spain where there is ocean as far as the eye can see. Beautiful.
  7. Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
    “…and that’s important to you because …?”. I also love a good use of “predisposition” and “frictionless”.
  8. You are only allowed to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what is it going to be?
    Tempura scallop hand rolls with Japanese mayo and a squeeze of lemon.
  9. What song gets you on the dance floor?
    ‘Crazy in Love’ – Beyonce.
  10. If there was a song to sum you up, what would it be?
    ‘There’s nothing holding me back’ – Shawn Mendes
  11. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    Professionally, winning three ACRAs (Australian Commercial Radio Awards) and completing my MBA. There’s still plenty of time to top that.
  12. If you were a super hero what would your super power be?
    In gaming terms, I’d be a cleric, shaman or druid with the power to heal.
  13. What did you want to be growing up?
    Earlier years, a ballerina and then through high school, a journalist.
  14. What is the greatest bit of advice you have ever been given?
    Do what you love, love what you do.
  15. You can go back in time and change absolutely any ONE thing you want, what would it be?
    …  and risk accidentaly creating a paradox that would unravel the delicate fabric of the space-time continuum? Nope, but thanks for the offer.
