Who is Maddison Watts? I’m a 29-year-old single parent with a son. I’m the manager at Kebab’alish. I was born in Sydney but we moved here (Wagga) when I was five. I’ve been with the kebab store for 14 years. I worked here when it was Kickstart Kebabs.

Best recent dining experience: I haven’t been out much. I just stay home with my son. I can’t remember the last time I went out. I think we went down to the RSL Club and it was pretty nice.
