ASHLEIGH ADDISON

Ash is Uptown's chief strategist and writer. Her core strength is making sure every aspect of our work is delivered with impact. She spends most of her time crafting media pitches and copywriting, as well as dabbling in design, video and digital work.


Ash has extensive experience working with all aspects of media and communications campaigns, with a background working across Government, corporates and not-for-profit sectors.

In her free time, Ash loves being on the water (boating, fishing, kayaking) and playing indoor soccer with her Championship-winning team! She loves to travel, cook and make her own cocktails. She a proud 'Dog Mum' to a Cavoodle named Chips.

PATTY BARRETT

DIRECTOR

Patty manages all aspects of Uptown's operations. Her typical workload can include anything from media pitching through to client acquisition, office management and accounts. When it comes to pitching, she won't take 'no' for an answer!

Coming from an events and fundraising background, Patty also takes the lead on Uptown's events. No one can run an event quite as seamlessly and professionally as Patty does! 

Outside the office, Patty loves spending time with her two little girls Harper and Edie. She is a self-confessed shopaholic and loves nothing more than a day at the beach or out at the races. She is a reluctant 'Dog Mum' to a sausage dog named Freddie.

NINA WILLOUGHBY

EVENTS & COMMUNICATIONS

Nina is a star all-rounder, well-versed in all aspects of PR and event management. She previously worked in the travel and automotive industries and made the jump to agency side with Uptown.

 

She's a gun at all things project management and logistics. She also has the gift of the gab, being able to talk her way into the newsroom and secure  prime media placement for our clients.

Nina is simply a delight to work with. She is a brilliant multitasker and can juggle multiple projects with extreme efficiency, a big smile and a (usually very loud) laugh.​ Her office nickname is 'Harmony' because you'll often find her at a 5am yoga class or soaking her crystals in the moonlight.

MICHAELA MONEY

MEDIA & DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS

Mickey can do pretty much anything she sets her mind to. She loves a challenge and if you can manage to find something she can't do - just wait 24 hours.

She is a brilliant content creator and relishes in the digital space - video editing, animation, graphic design, eDMs, websites... the lot!

Mickey's mind for media strategy, paired with her creativity and efficiency makes her a force to be reckoned with. 

She loves to travel (in fact, we had to endure 12 months without her whilst she galavanted around Europe). She spends her free time going on 4WD adventures, obsessing over dogs and working out at the gym.

She comes from a background in marketing and communications across both corporate and not-for-profit sectors.
 

Gabby compliments her PR work with a love of social media.​​ She's always up on the latest news about social media algorithms, tips, tricks and trends. 

In her downtime, Gabby loves to cook - which is great for us, as her enthusiastic taste testers. She loves finishing the day with a margarita in hand and a cuddle from her cat, Luna.
