How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here?
Since 1994 moving from Victoria. Parkes has many great community groups to get involved in.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I’m self-employed and partner in our farm business with my husband. We run merino/fat lambs, cattle and grow a few crops. I really enjoy being a primary producer, in particular a wool grower. I’m a qualified wool classer, and love the natural wool fibre.
What do you do in your spare time and on weekends? I play clarinet in Parkes Shire Concert Band and Lachlan Regional Orchestra, and saxophone with an ensemble for fun. I also volunteer with the Parkes Primary School band. Playing music and supporting it in the community is really a passion of mine.
What are you really good at? Caring for and enjoying time with my family and friends.
If you could have a superpower what would it be? Predict the weather – a farmer’s dream
What is your pet hate? People who drop or leave rubbish about.
Tell us about your best holiday. Every holiday is a good one, but last year’s sixweek road trip around Western Australia’s wildlflowers and National Parks was memorable.
