How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I’ve lived in Parkes with my husband and three children since 2008 and prior to that I lived here from 1994 to 2001, so all up about 18 years
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I work at BWR Accountants and Advisers in Parkes. The best part of my day is talking to our clients when they come in the office. I enjoy having a chat and making a joke to brighten their day as well as mine.
What do you do in your spare time and on weekends? I love to spend time outdoors with my three little boys. I am also studying to get my Teachers Aide Certificate to help my children with their schooling, and I have written seven children’s books. My husband and I also have a trailer hire business that has just started.
What are you really good at? I don’t believe I’m REALLY good at anything, but this is what my children think I’m good at. Mr 8 says: singing; Mr 6 says: writing really fast and typing fast; Mr 4 says: working at your work. I just love the honesty of my kids.
If you could have a superpower what would it be? I would love the power that Dash from The Incredibles has. It would mean I could clean my house and do the washing at lightning speed, so I didn’t waste my weekends doing it.
What is your pet hate? When things don’t happen to my master plan. I am a massive planner and can get frustrated when I hit a snag and things don’t happen the way I’d like them to.
Tell us about your best holiday. The best holiday I had was in March this year. My husband and I went on a Carnival Spirit Cruise to the Pacific Islands (without the kids) for our 10th wedding anniversary. So much fun to be had on the high seas. Highly recommend it.
