How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here?
I have lived in Parkes since 1984 when I was posted here to teach PE at Parkes High School. What I most like about Parkes is that it is a really good size as it offers lots of sport, and enough activities to keep us busy. It is a great place to raise our kids.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? My husband and I own and run Byrne Clothing and Worklocker Parkes. I enjoy the formal wear side of the business the most and love seeing the finished result, especially the weddings.
What do you do in your spare time and on weekends? When we get time off I love to garden, and tend my Angus cows.
What are you really good at? I pride myself on my attention to detail, and my organisation skills.
If you could have a superpower what would it be? If I could have a superpower it would be flying so I could see my kids quickly as they all live in different places now!
What is your pet hate? Other people’s bad body odour!
Tell us about your best holiday. My best holiday was our trip to Canada a couple of years ago – it is amazing. I loved Lake Louise and The Rockies. Canada is closely followed by a recent trip to Darwin, it really is Australia’s last frontier!
