Isobel (possibly the most loveable woman on the planet), is one half of the pair who founded and directs TABOO. After Izzy’s high school days she went to fulfil a couple of her dreams, one to live in Paris (which she did for three months) and the other to change the world, and this was done through kick-starting TABOO! Now you’ll be able to find Izzy studying her heart away in Medicine at Adelaide uni, and also in any cool cafe you can find in Adelaide. She sure loves her coffee, her friends and family, and of course her pack of beautiful dogs!
Eloise, more commonly known to her friends and family as “Wheezie”, is one of the two founding directors of TABOO. After finishing high school in Adelaide, Eloise took a gap year to kick-start TABOO and do some travelling! She now studies a double degree of Business and International Studies at Flinders University, works part time, runs TABOO, lives out of home like a real adult AND seems to find enough time for her friends and family too. We think she may in fact be the real Wonder Woman. We will confirm with you when we find more evidence.
Ali contacted the TABOO team in March 2018 after seeing one of our stickers at her uni. As soon as we met her, we knew it was meant to be! As our in-house journalist, Ali is responsible for our monthly newsletter “The Monthly Taboo” and our fortnightly blog posts. Ali does all of this alongside her full time job working in a marketing agency. She is also an incredible cat-mum to Gatsby, her very cheeky and fun loving black cat. This gal wears so many hats (all very stylish) and fits so much into her week. There are rumours that she is in fact magic.
Harriet finished her degree in marketing at Adelaide University in 2018, and is now doing an honours year and working as a uni tutor. Harriet volunteers her time to TABOO as our marketing genius, designing and implementing strategic plans for us to promote our pads and tampons!
Like Ali, Harriet is also a mother to an extremely spoilt cat who goes by the name of Lilah. When she’s not studying, working, volunteering or mothering, she can usually be found on the netball court. We’re yet to discover her secret to being so good at everything.
Jaida is nothing short of an angel sent to us from heaven. Just as TABOO’s volunteer program went through an exciting period of growth, Jaida swooped in and totally revamped the system of contacting, communicating with and organising TABOO’s volunteers. Jaida is currently studying Science at Adelaide uni, working and volunteering at various organisations. Jaida’s passion constantly inspires us in the office, and it makes us sick to think of the disorganised mess that would be our system of documentation if Jaida hadn’t come to the rescue. One thing we have learned from Jaida: it is possible to function without a smartphone!! Jaida uses a flip phone so well and we’re all low-key jealous!
Lolly met Eloise through their part-time work and this eventually led to her becoming an absolutely integral part of TABOO’s team. The tremendously intelligent Lolly works with the team in a PR/media role. Using her creative instincts, she has aided in multiple developments, including the production of our very first video advert. We also discovered quite early on that Lolly has a hidden talent as a model! Before joining our team, we asked Lolly to be in our product photoshoot. It turns out that she was absolutely incredible! Actually, we weren’t surprised at all – she’s absolutely gorgeous inside and out! You may see her face dotted around our website and socials, generally with a pack of pads or tampons pretty close by!
Annabel joined our team in March 2019, working with Ali to create content for our newsletter and blogs! Annabel is an intrepid traveller and has had such a wide and incredible set of experiences learning about different cultures and people. Her passion for sharing the stories and triumphs of women in particular has led her to study Journalism and International Relations at Uni SA. Fun fact: Annabel lives out of Adelaide on a farm – maybe the fresh air is the secret to her awesomeness!
Our amazing website designer Zoe lives in Melbourne and is studying a Bachelor of Communication design at Monash University. Zoe is in charge of making sure our website looks schmick, and designing graphics for us to use on social media and website platforms. We are so grateful for Zoe’s patience as she constantly has to explain how plugins, coding, servers, and “the cloud” work. Fun fact – we have only met Zoe through Skype calls! How new-age of us all!
