Katie Fyfe is a mother and Director of a popular dance academy two big roles many would consider full-time.
But Katie not only takes on both of these roles with gusto, she's decided to take on another major project on top of that.
Katie has taken on the challenge of coordinating and putting on the 2019 Mudgee Small Farm Field Days Fashion Show, proving that she is probably one of the hardest working people in town.
The Mudgee Guardian spoke with Katie at her Dream Dance Academy studio as she was in the midst of putting the finishing touches on this year's show, whose theme - by the way - is a bit 'Royal'.
She spoke about the unexpected challenges, what drove her to take on the job and what she's enjoyed the most about putting on her first major fashion show.
"I've been involved in a few different shows in the past, so this year when the opportunity to coordinate come up I thought, 'well...why not?', she said.
"It's been busy, but I really enjoy it. We've got a great group of girls on this year which has made it pretty enjoyable, a lot of the them are involved here at my dance studio so they're really easy to work with."
Preparation for a show like this can take a long time, Katie said she made sure she doesn't rush it.
"We only started rehearsals a couple of weeks ago, but I've been in contact with exhibitors for the last couple of months just planning exactly what they would like to put in and show," she said.

"Across the roughly 30 different exhibitors, they will have close to 300 pieces. We are excited to also be showcasing the local Be-Spoke Boutique, run by Tianna Murkins."
Coming full circle, former participant, Mudgee's Natalie Wakeling, is a part of this year's show though much differently than in the past.
"Natalie is now the owner and CEO of Embody Women. Her career actually started at the Field Days when she was 14, it was her very first catwalk show and now she's an international businesswoman. She's really excited to be a part of it," Katie said.
Katie didn't give too much away, but expect a show that combines Katie's talents as a dance teacher and director.
"I'm excited this year to be combining some dance choreography into the show, we've got a few surprises." she laughed.
Katie's daughter, Everly who is just two years old will be making her catwalk debut at the show along with her mother and a collection of models of varied ages, sizes, genders and talents with Katie stressing the importance of being inclusive.
The Mudgee Small Farm Field Days are this Friday and Saturday, July 12 - 13, 2019.
