How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I’ve lived in Parkes since 2005. I like how the community is engaged and forward thinking. Not just sitting around complaining about things, but actually getting involved to make the town better.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I work as a Teacher’s Aide at Holy Family School. I love working with the kids. I love their fabulous personalities – they make me laugh every day.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? What spare time? Just give me half an hour on occasion to read good historical fiction.
What makes you proud? Being organised and singing.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? I’d definitely be a pet cat. Mine’s got it pretty good.
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? ‘At Last’ by Etta James, it was my wedding song.
Tell us about your best holiday. With my family last year, we travelled 13,000km towing a camper trailer through the middle of Australia – a lot of it totally off grid. We did the Canning Stock Route which is the most remote 4WD track in the entire world. An amazing adventure.
What is on your bucket list? Diving with Great White Sharks off South Australia.
