The Born Identity – Kathe Manansala

Join us, as we sit with Kathe, our Business Development Manager for NSW and get to know her a little better. 

How long have you worked at Scantek? 

8 Months.

What is your job title, and what does your job entail? 

I’m the Business Development Manager for New South Wales.

What do you like most about your job?

A truly amazing team & sharing this awesome product with the general public.

What is the best career advice you’ve learnt so far?

Work-life balance, routine & structure is imperative. It translates into your work if you are happy in your personal life.

If you are passionate and happy, clients like dealing with positive people, and you’re more approachable.


What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

Why would I do anything else? I love my job.

BUT… If I had to do something else, I’d love to be getting paid to travel on adventures around the world.

I’d be happy being the female version of Sir David Attenborough.

What do you like to do when you aren’t working?

I’m usually surfing, free diving, surf-skating, paddle boarding or snowboarding. I’m a big outdoors person.

I also have an indoor plant obsession; I have hundreds and stopped counting after 100.

What’s a fun fact about you that many people may not know?

I’m the founder of a women’s adventure group with over 1300 members. It empowers women from all walks of life and any age group to get outdoors and push themselves doing adrenaline-filled activities, all whilst enjoying nature & its healing properties.

This group has changed many women’s lives and given them a community to feel a part of, which was crucial during the two years of lockdown/isolation.

Where’s your favourite place in the world?

Hawaii, I can do all my favourite things there.

Surf, dive, hike and eat delicious poke bowls!

What is your motto or personal mantra?

If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger.

If you could meet anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Sir David Attenborough.

That man has seen and experienced many amazing things that ten men may not even see in one lifetime.

A true adventurer & an inspiration.

Three words to best describe you.

Motivated, kind & positive

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

My children: my daughter and my two fur babies

What TV show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

I’m not sorry, but people think I should be “Lord of the Rings”.

I’ve watched the director’s cut trilogy at least 100 times.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

The ability to fly anywhere (earth and space)

What is one food that you cannot resist?

I have to say I can’t decide if I like chilli or mangoes more.

But together, they are amazing.
