How long have you lived in Parkes? I’ve lived here for ten years. My husband is in the mining industry so we decided to move here from Ontario, Canada.
Where do you work? I’ve worked at Parkes Shire Council for 5 years, with two and half years in my current role as Economic and Business Development Manager.
What do you enjoy about working for the Council? I love the diversity of the role and that I get the opportunity to work with the community and of course my team who are fabulous.
How do you start your day? With a beautiful small person (one of 3) giving me a cuddle then a strong black coffee.
What do you like to do in your spare time? I read children’s book and play lego with my kids and in my own time I love to read a good book and take my dog for a nice, quiet walk.
What makes your day? Working closely with the community is a job I’m passionate about and getting to visit my children at school when the occasion arises.
