Elliana McRae is on a mission to educate the public on what restaurant services entails – and it’s much more than just setting tables.
When considering her career-path while at school, Elliana aspired to be a flight attendant. Her careers councillor suggested she study hospitality management to build the foundations before applying with an airline – something she did. But before she could take to the sky, Elliana’s teacher noticed her natural talent for hospitality and suggested she take part in the WorldSkills Australia program.
Under the guidance of her mentor, Deb Smith, and former-Skillaroo, Emilia Montague, Elliana has honed her skills and developed a winner’s mindset that saw her take Gold at the 2023 Nationals. She’s now ready to take on the best the world’s hospitality industries have to offer and is particularly looking forward to showcasing her creativity in the fine dining component.
“I love my fine dining day module, in which I get to make the salad as an entrée for my guests. There is something very empowering about being able to not only serve my guests food but also show them how it is made and change the flavour depending on how I construct it based on their preferences.”
