How long have you lived in Forbes and what do you like most about living here? Tim and I moved to the Warroo/Bedgerabong district in 1990. My great grandparents owned the Mulguthrie pub some 100 years earlier so I felt I was already a local. I enjoy that on the whole Forbes is a kind and tolerant community.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I have a few hats… a radiographer, Deputy Mayor of Forbes and a farmer’s wife. The best part of work are the people that surround me.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? I enjoy walks around the lake, extreme gardening and patchwork.
What makes you proud? I’m proud to feel that I am a valued member both at work and on council and that the community sense that I am someone they can approach and engage with.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose and why? My dad calls me Jenny Wren and believes I have some of their characteristics. They are very active, inquisitive birds that sing all of the time… just like me.
