Lind Hellmich - Fairplay Entertainment

Linda Hellmich

Linda is the new girl on the block and will be Fairplay’s go to for all things finance and admin.

Born in Scotland, Linda still carries a hint of an accent after becoming an Aussie a lifetime ago.

Be warned, she may or may not snort when she laughs and don’t challenge her for cash when it comes to a name that 80’s artist tune on any long road trip - you will be out of pocket!

Her first live concerts were Bucks Fizz (don’t judge her) and Wham!

She has a love of travel, reality TV shows and reading, but most of all chocolate.
