"I come from a strong customer service background and found myself as a grief support volunteer for a local group. This lead me to the funeral industry.  It is an honour to be able to assist families in this journey and to be there to listen to their needs and help provide a service that best suits them."

Hayley McLean

"I am a Funeral Director for Burkin Svendsens Funerals, assisting families with arranging and conducting services. I’ve always found comfort in helping people, while I am caring for their family at times of particular need. In addition to my work within the funeral industry I am planning to study for a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and thereby enhance my ability to understand, appreciate and connect with people in my community."

Brett Faithfull

"I first joined the funeral industry at a small funeral home in Cairns in April 2006. I joined Burkin Svendsens Funerals in April 2007 as a trainee embalmer with Aaron Burkin becoming my embalming mentor. Since starting in the industry, I have worked from washing and cleaning vehicles to embalming in very remote locations and have loved every minute of it."

Makayla McQueen

"I started my career in the funeral industry with a small family funeral home and decided to further my knowledge and skills in the industry, which lead me to working with Burkin Svendsens Funerals. I am looking into studying Embalming as it is my overall career goal. I enjoy caring for and looking after every family and their needs when it comes to these difficult times."
