I grew up in Leeton, a small country town in South-West NSW, and came to Sydney to study at University.
I gained a teaching degree.. and also met my husband. I have spent over 30 years working in Community Services in South Western Sydney. I have worked with children and families as a Director and teacher in various Child Care Services and as a Trainer in Adult Education facilitating employment preparation and industry training at TAFE. I am especially passionate about empowering families and individuals to reach their true potential while celebrating and nurturing the special relationship between child and parent. With four children aged 14 – 22 years I spend a lot of my time volunteering to assist with their various sport teams. When I have free time I love to read and garden, but that doesn’t happen often.
