How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here?
I moved to Parkes with my parents and sib- lings in 1989, was away for a little while and made my way back. Parkes is big enough to have good facilities and services, but small enough to still have a country town feeling. I also love that we are close to cities and fabulous little communities.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work?
I work for Central West Lachlan Landcare (CWLL). I enjoy meeting people who are doing their bit in their patch, not expecting rewards or promotion. I am learning every day!
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends?
Spending time with family and friends, gardening, camping.
What are you really good at?
The term ‘really good’ is a bit of a challenge. I think that I try hard to make a difference and I do the best that I can.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
After enjoying watching Wonder Woman on the long weekend, I’m pretty up on my super power knowledge. Mine would be to heal hearts and relationships.
What is your pet hate?
I try not to hate anything, because hate wastes your energy, hurts you and warps your perception. One dislike would be ungratefulness, particularly when we have so much to be grateful for.
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
I always love Tassie and always want to go back again, but growing up, we lived quite a distance from our grandparents and didn’t get to see them very often. I think visiting my grandparents dairy farm was where I learnt the most about people, relationships and gained my greatest appreciation of nature, farming and their connection.
