How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here?
I moved to Parkes in July 1993. I love the friendly, helpful and caring nature of Parkes residents.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? I work as a Building Surveyor at Parkes Shire Council. I really enjoy the variation in activities that I deal with. I like helping people, however the enforcement side of the position is not much fun.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? I enjoy relaxing on the verandah with family, looking at the view, and spending time with my birds and dogs.
What are you really good at? Apparently baking banana cake and apple cake. I am always getting requests.
If you could have a super power, what would it be? To make everyone happy; make everyone smile when I talk to them.
What is your pet hate? My pet hate is littering and vandalism.
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
My best holiday ever was to Canada with my family, as I adored the snow-capped mountains, turquoise lakes and wild animals.
