Element on Coolum Beach is now under new Management.
It is always amazing the diverse backgrounds of people who decide to take a totally different tangent and venture into management rights.
Shirley Leacy, management rights owner of Element on Coolum Beach since April 2012 is another multitalented person successfully meeting this challenge.
After more than 30 years in the health industry as a registered nurse specialising in the operating theatre, Shirley has had immense experience dealing with people from all walks of life.
Besides volunteering her expertise to teach operating theatre staff in Cambodia and Vanuatu assisting with major facial surgery, Shirley managed a retirement centre, which included independent living units, hostel and a nursing home with 70 staff.
Although Shirley’s interest in management rights was sparked many years ago it was only recently that she took her first step into the industry.
“The managerial experience at the retirement centre gave me the confidence to take on Element on Coolum Beach,” explained Shirley.
“Any new venture is a bit nerve-racking at first when it is something totally new and I went through a few learning curves and challenges,” said Shirley. “Right from the start when I made the decision to buy Element on Coolum Beach I just had this thing that I’m in my ‘element at Element’.”
“Some guests were checking in when settlement finalised and because I was so happy with everything, they returned two days later with a beautiful floral arrangement for me,” Shirley smiled.
Located on Queensland’s popular Sunshine Coast, Element on Coolum Beach is centrally located within close proximity to the beach, shops, restaurants, banks and boutiques, with nine popular speciality shops within the precinct.
Coolum hosts some of the best known cafés, bars and restaurants on the Sunshine Coast— perfect for all day dining or winding down after a busy day at the beach.
