One of the most experienced and professional committee members SAMA has ever seen, Phyllis appreicates Bleach, Black Butler, Tatami Galaxy and Pokemon!
She joined SAMA committee in her first year as Treasurer in 2013 and stayed for another year until 2015.
She returned in a surprise move to everyone including herself, in 2016 she self-nominated at the AGM after being reminded of how wonderful SAMA committee can be.
She has been the lynchpin of SAMA, always keeping committee on track with her expertise in club and fincial matters.
Although her persona may be intimidating at times, she has a soft spot for small animals, anything cute and the club she's dedicated so much effort into.
Two things are constant with Phyllis, she'll always be playing Pokemon Go and she'll always be greatly misssed on committee <3
