Sylvia's story

In 2014, Sylvia Bowie joined Compass Group’s Defence sector. As a proud First Nations Woman, Sylvia displays great strength and determination and is a well-respected member of the team.

She lights up a room with her presence and puts a smile on everyone’s face no matter her personal circumstances.

Over the past two years, Sylvia has experienced some difficult times with the loss of both parents. With some time away from the workplace, we are very excited to have this beautiful mother, grandmother and valued teammate, with her winning smile, back at site! 

We celebrate Sylvia for the beautiful, strong and amazing woman that she is.
