Letitia Wing
Project Engineer

About:

I was born in a small remote town in the Kimberley Region in WA Before moving to Darwin when I was 4 years old and have called it home ever since. I’m a bush girl at heart and would rather go camping for a week than a luxury holiday. (not that I don’t mind a fancy holiday now and then). I don’t like sweets, I’m all about the savoury & spice (chilli’s & anything pickled are my favourites). I love entertaining for my friends and having big camp oven cook ups with an ice cold beverage. I believe in being the best that you can be and doing what you love.
