Mudgee Region Tourism Team Biographies

Tim Booth

Full time
Started // 17 Oct 2022

Tim has lived in Mudgee just over 12 months and absolutely loves it here.

He has worked in Tourism Marketing organisations since 2008 and is really enjoying the challenges that the region faces here in the Mudgee Region. We have a great offering with incredible people, and it is our job at Mudgee Region Tourism to bring this to the fore and ensure we continue to put the region on the map. I have been so impressed with the passion within the region and continued commitment to tourism.

When not working I love exploring the region with my partner and two dogs.

Camilla Davis

Business Support Manager
PPT (Mon, Tue, Thu + Fri)
Started // 15 Oct 2020

As BSM, Camilla works closely with and supports Mudgee Region Tourism’s CEO, the rest of the leadership team and Board of Directors. While she has a diverse background in both management and administration in both the tourism and publishing industry. Communication and teamwork with empathy are incredibly important to Camilla, as is good organisation and finding efficiencies in all day-to-day business activities.

Prior to moving to Mudgee at the end of 2018, Camilla lived in London for 18+ years, moving back to Australia to be near her aging parents. But she is a country girl at heart, having grown up on a property just down the road at Coolah, and is loving being in the Mudgee Region with everything it has to offer.

Bec Quilty

Marketing + Partnerships Mgr

FT (Mon–Fri)

Started // 23 Jan 2023

Bec spent her formative years in rural New South Wales, including Goolma and Rylstone. Following this she studied a Bachelor of Tourism in Canberra, after which her professional journey led me to roles in Australia and the United States. These roles encompassed positions in tourism operations, tour wholesaling, as well as event and destination management, with a focus on marketing the South Pacific region.

In 2019, Bec and her husband Hamish and their three teenage boys, moved to the Mudgee Region to be closer to family.

Reneé French

Community Engagement
FT (Mon–Fri)
Started // 12 Jan 2023

After working in both the music and marketing industries in Sydney, Reneé boldly shifted her family to Mudgee almost a decade ago to work in winemaking, seeking community and a richer, more connected life. The wine industry granted her accolades like being associate wine judge at the 2022 Mudgee Wine Show, and a regular winemaker host at wine events, as well as a deep passion for Mudgee Region wine.

Off-duty Reneé volunteers in community theatre, as player on Mudgee's stages, and lends her voice to a local covers band. The Community Engagement Specialist role gives her the ability to truly drink in all the delights Mudgee has to offer. She is passionate about the vibrant Mudgee Region community, and she loves being able to engage the region that embraced her so warmly.

Morgan Hannaford

Experience Expert Lead
FT (Mon–Fri)
Started // 18 May 2022

Morgan is a true local, born and raised in the beautiful countryside of the Mudgee Region that she’s always called home – and she couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

Through Morgan’s career, she’s had the opportunity to work in both the hospitality and retail sectors. These experiences have allowed her to develop great customer service skills, and to take pride in creating positive and memorable interactions with people. Morgan looks forward to growing with the team here at MRT and giving our visitors a top-notch experience in the Mudgee Region.

Beyond my work life, Morgan enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, and being able to explore the town she calls home. She loves a good cocktail or two, visiting the wineries and going to markets on the weekend.

Hannah Stevenson

Experience Expert
PT (Rotating Roster)
Started // 28 Aug 2023

As a teenager, Hannah moved from the Northern Beaches in Sydney to Rylstone in 2003 with her family to breed Alpacas.

After meeting her best friend and soulmate at high school, they set off on their own adventure for a few years. Eventually they decided to return to start a family and set themselves up in the Mudgee Region they knew as home.

Hannah has been involved in the tourism industry in Mudgee for over eight years. She loves it whenever someone asks, ‘What can we do in the region?’ and sharing with visitors all the things here that she loves to indulge in. In her own time, she is heavily involved in the performing art scenes in Mudgee, often taking on outrageous characters in local theatre and screen productions. She is also a fine artist and photographer, and simply loves dancing with her children in the loungeroom.

Tracey Maitland

Experience Expert |
PT (Rotating Roster)
Started // 27 Feb 2023

Tracey and her family ‘discovered’ Mudgee on a camping holiday many years ago, loving it so much that they kept coming back at every opportunity. Eventually they bought a weekender, but going back to Sydney at the end of each weekend became harder and harder – it came as no surprise to everyone who know them when they decided to move to the region permanently. Tracey loves the Mudgee Region and feels she’s in the perfect role to share her passion with visitors and perhaps other future Mudgee locals who will end up doing exactly as she has.

Gyan Endacott

Experience Expert
Started // 11 Sep 2023

Gyan’s last 14 years have been spent working in various areas of the Hospitality and Tourism Industry, ranging from silver service to luxury escapes and then as Owner Operator of her own cafés and restaurant.

She understands the value and unique opportunities that small local business provides to a region and is passionate about always contributing positively towards people’s experiences. Gyan enjoys sharing her knowledge along with her love of the local area and history, and hopes to only enhance each and every visitor’s stay.

Gyan is Mudgee born and bred and, after a 10-year hiatus in Northern NSW, as Mudgee does, it has called her home.

Jasmine Gudgeon

Experience Expert
Started // 14 Sep 2023

After spending some years in Sydney and the Hunter Valley, Jasmine returned home 10 years ago to Mudgee where she grew up and where her family still are. Since returning to town, she has enjoyed running a small retail store selling furniture, local art + gifts, which she recently sold, before joining the team at MRT.

People is Jasmine’s passion. Her background lies in hospitality, marketing, retail, fitness and wellness – it’s all about people!

Jasmine loves discovering more about our beautiful Mudgee Region and, in fact, she has a list of wineries, eateries and experiences to catch up on. In her spare time, you will find Jasmine exploring one of the region’s many local trails or swimming laps at the pool with her son. Nature is her happy place!
