Nadia Ribeiro

Stars of The Highlands 2022

Owner I Highlands Grazing Collective

Everyone meet the wonderful Nadia, owner of homewares store called ‘Highlands Grazing Collective’. Nadia has a passion for beautiful homewares and flowers. When she isn’t at work being creative and enjoying lovely chats with her clients, you will find her spending time with her family.  


Nadia has a rich background in creating beautiful (and delicious!) grazing tables, platters and luxury picnics alongside her homewares store in Mittagong.


Having only done a little dance in High School, Nadia is ready to take on the dancefloor all in the name of a good cause.


“My motivation to be a Star is to raise money for an incredibly worthy cause, while gaining some confidence along the way.” 


We’ll be cheering for you, Nadia!
