How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? Lived in Parkes 22 years and I really love the relaxed pace, the friendly people and the size of the town.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I am a physiotherapist and I run my own practice in Parkes. I really enjoy the work and it’s been a great way to become part of the community.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? I freely admit that I have too many hobbies so it’s hard to pick my favourite thing to do, but it’s probably cycling on my mountain bike, touring bike or penny farthing!
What makes you proud? Definitely my two girls. Watching them grow into happy, young adults with a life of their own makes me enormously proud.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? I have absolutely no idea what animal I’d like to be. I think I’m way too practical for that, but probably a mountain goat – my trekking mates will understand why!
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? All-time favourite song has to be My Sharona by The Knack. I’m a tragic for a one-hit-wonder!
Tell us about your best holiday. Best holiday is hard to choose – it has to be an adventure holiday for me so probably riding penny farthings in Thailand.
What is on your bucket list? My bucket list is always full but I think travelling to Antarctica would be at the top.
