How long have you lived in Parkes?
I live about 46km from Parkes in Goonumbla. I was born there, so have lived in the area for all my life, except for the two years I worked at a renal transplant unit in Sydney.
What do you like about Parkes? It would be the people. As a community they get behind things and really care. The people of Parkes are very supportive.
Where do you work? I work for Lachlan Area Health as a McGrath Breast Care Nurse.
What do you enjoy about your work?
Hopefully that I make a difference, so that people don’t feel so isolated.
What do you do with your free time? I like to spend time with my husband, Tuck, and my daughter Tahlia. I really enjoy just being at home. It’s nice and quiet. If three cars go down our street it’s a busy day.
How do you like your coffee? Bellas make a dairy-free coffee chill, and if I’m having a bad day, that’s what I’ll have. Otherwise I don’t tend to drink coffee, but I am a total chocoholic.
What makes your day? Probably just seeing my daughter happy, and spending time with my family. We’ve all become so busy, that quality time together becomes really special.
If you could go anywhere in the world on holiday, where would it be? We go to Queensland all the time, but I would have to say Hawaii – if I could just click my fingers and be there – it’s the long flight that gets me.
