How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here?
Since 2005. Parkes has a very friendly and active community, with a number of key services and opportunities that other towns of similar size don’t have. Moving to Parkes from Sydney was a delight with a short commute, quiet, friendly neighbourhoods and a very progressive Council.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work?
Parkes Shire Council. I have always been an active member of the community in which I live and working at Council and specifically in a service delivery role, it allows me to affect positive change and work directly with groups and individuals to get positive outcomes.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends?
Exercise, music, Netflix, meditation and the odd drink get me wound down and ready to play all weekend with the kids.
What are you really good at?
I can whistle with my mouth closed.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Since as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to have the ability to fly, but as an adult a better power may be to be able to read people’s minds…
What is your pet hate?
Cats, hmmm, no, they’re a pet that I hate. I mean, cold showers.
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
Tour of Canada and Europe, wonderful sites, wonderful people, wonderful food and a proposal at the Eiffel Tower to boot.
