Meet the Baby Give Back Directors | A Gold Coast Charity

Carly Fradgley
FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR
I'm a lawyer, wife to Matt and mother to Isla (4yrs) and Noah (2yrs). I love reading a book, hanging at the beach or creek with my family or having a sneaky wine with friends. I'm super clumsy, have broken my big toe twice and little toes about 10 times. My mum still never hands me something without saying "don't drop it Carly" My fav quote is: "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is wasted." (Aesop) My biggest parenting fail - convincing my daughter that it is ok to pee in the creek only to have her yell out "Daddy! Mummy said I should wee in the creek!" loud enough for everyone around to hear!
Kylie Gregson
DIRECTOR
Hi I'm Kylie, I am mumma to the most beautiful spirited little girls Zahli she is 5 (thinks she is 15) and Lane the wild one is 18mo. I run a family travel business with my mum #myrock. Hubby Craig is in construction, early starts and late finishes, but he is the most amazing dad to these little chicks, he is learning all about physie and how to point your toes correctly at the moment thanks to Zahli. Let's just say it's a girls world at this house. We love the beach and sun and love to travel. After having the girls I get that mumma bear feeling and want every baby to be safe and cared for. It's important to lead by example and show my girls how we can help others who may be in a tough situation.
Julie-Anne McBride
DIRECTOR
I'm a mum to 2 gorgeous girls, Jessica (5) and Isabelle (3). Jessica makes you want to be a better person, she has a gentle nature and the kindest soul. Izzy is fiercely independent. She has an iron will but is incredible affectionate and loves with everything she's got. Stu, the hubby, is the rock. He's super cruisey and just goes with the flow. Pretty useful in house full of girls. He loves golf (Yah! - sense my sarcasm) and footy and all things sport. Me...I love the water, I try get to the beach pretty much every day. I love cross fit, running and watching trashy TV. Our favourite thing to do as a fam would be swimming at the Tallebudgera creek or jumping in the waves at the beach. I work part time at Gold Coast Recreation and Sport, a charity that provides programs for people with disabilities. I love it and feel very grateful to work and volunteer in the not for profit sector.
Ainsley McLaren
DIRECTOR
I am the mother of two healthy, exuberant, clever kids; and have a wonderful and supportive husband. For both I am forever grateful. I LOVE helping families in need feel loved through Baby Give Back. I use my professional experience in business and community development, to help with strategic planning, policy writing, systems development and grant writing. I enjoy working together with the girls to achieve amazing things for our community. When I am not “Baby Give Back’ing”, I work part-time in property development; and love playing netball and catching up with family and friends. Most of all, I love travelling and sharing new experiences with my family.
