Serial prankster, Zoe George doesn’t take life too seriously. If you follow her Instagram account @thesubtlemummy you would see the multiple pranks she pulls especially on her friends and husband Rob. She’s hilarious and super fun.
But Zoe is so much more than that too. She is an amazing mum to her beautiful kids Ari and Ambrosia and was an easy choice for our Inspiring Mum’s campaign. Zoe has taken a break from her job as a woodwork teacher and killed it on Big Brother last year.
When she’s not imitating her beautiful Greek mum she gives the best tips - I did not know that you can break up mince meat by pushing through the holes on your spoon!
We were stoked when she agreed to chat with us for our Inspiring Mums campaign and even more stoked when Ari gave us some truths about his mum.
