Behind the Scenes: Meet Svenja

With the need for connection being more important than ever before, we’re pleased to share with you some behind-the-scenes action from the ACRF team. Meet Svenja Steffen, who looks after our Corporate Partnerships.

“My work has always been very important to me and something that I put a lot of effort and time into, but since I started working for ACRF in October last year, I feel my professional career has fallen into place.

I love finding new ways of growing ACRF’s corporate partnerships as well as connecting with our supporters on a more personal level. I am passionate about creating opportunities for businesses and their teams to make an impact to a better future.

Outside of work I spend a lot of time at the South East Equestrian Club in Malabar where I ride, volunteer with barn chores and spend quality time with my friends, which quite often involves eating homemade cake while overlooking Malabar Headlands (a great spot to watch whales!).

I love Sydney’s beaches and even though I have been living here for five years by now, I still have to pinch myself every now and then when spending my lunch break at Maroubra beach, doing the coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee or overlooking the city’s skyline in a distance from Camp Cove in Watsons Bay. Such blue skies, crystal clear waters and beautiful sand are still a holiday picture for me.

For me, one silver lining of the current pandemic is the progress to more flexibility and an output-focused approach from employers, which made me, and my partner Brandon decide to fulfil our shared dream of adding a Golden Retriever to our family. We are now proud fur parents of our beautiful and smart little lady, Maple.”
