How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I was born in Parkes and have been fortunate to live here for the past 26 years. Parkes has many great facilities, friendly people and endless prospects. The serenity of country living is second to none!
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I work at Parkes Shire Council as a management accountant. On weekends I assist in our family business at Parkes News & Gifts. The opportunity to work with a great team at council whilst undertaking a diverse range of tasks makes me enjoy coming to work each day.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? I enjoy playing sport and socialising with friends. I also have a passion for running and hope to achieve my goal of finishing a half-marathon by the end of this year.
What makes you proud? I’m always proud to be an Australian. Australia is a place where compassion, courage and resilience are always displayed. There are endless opportunities, freedom of speech, quality education and health systems. I always feel privileged to live in this great country!
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? The ability to be a bird, flying high with breath-taking views and watching over the land.
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? As a massive sports fan, ‘Blind Side’ is my favourite movie.
