Shop Local SA Staff Headshots Michael

Michael Bridge


Motivated about business I value integrity, innovation, entrepreneurship, and collaboration.

I am passionate about our regional communities and the part we all play in the big picture.

I am based in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia and work across all regions in the State and beyond.

On weekends you'll find me spending time with my family, probably out and about exploring outdoors or down at the river.

Shop Local SA Staff Headshots Janna

Janna Heading

Business Relationship Manager

I am passionate about local businesses succeeding and kicking goals! I feel privileged to be able to work with so many amazing South Australian businesses on the Shop Local SA marketplace.

My role is to take care of our Shop Local SA vendor community by supporting them through the onboarding process, looking after their marketing needs and providing support through store assistance, account management and more. Every day I work toward the best part of my job … seeing vendors ‘happy dance’ with every new order!

My family and I are based in the beautiful Adelaide Hills but will always have a special place in my heart for the Mid North where I grew up.

Office Administration

I have a background in corporate event management and office administration amongst other things.

I absolutely love organising things, fixing problems and making systems smoother for the internal team and our customers and vendors. You can usually find me buried in a spreadsheet or organising things around the office.

In my spare time I am studying Building Biology with a passion for healthy living and being outside travelling and camping with my family!






Jake Peacock

Marketing and Design Coordinator

With a degree in Creative Advertising and a passion for design and marketing, I am a big supporter of the Shop Local SA vision and love the opportunity to support businesses both in my home state of SA and nationwide!

I tackle a lot of the visual design and campaign development involved in promoting our platform and its vendors, as well as assist with both web and social media marketing.

Outside of work, you can find me watching an array of films and TV shows, exploring the cocktail bars and distilleries around SA or climbing walls at Beyond Bouldering – all with my family and friends.
