Dianne Collie is our new Reporter at the Forbes Phoenix. She has worked and lived in Forbes for the past seven years with her husband Fred (Brian when he has played golf badly). Dianne moved to Forbes from Broken Hill and she worked as a human resources manager with the Bernardi Group. When the focus of the HR team shifted to an operational role her position was made redundant.
Prior to living in Broken Hill, Dianne lived in Adelaide for 15 years. In addition to raising her two children, Lachlan and Bonnie, she was partner in a book keeping and taxation franchise. Dianne has almost gone full circle when she moved to Forbes as she attended Saint Raphael’s in Cowra until Year 10, and then relocated to the Blue Mountains.
Although Dianne’s past work experience has been primarily in human resources her love of people as well as writing, lead her to apply for the role of reporter. She is excited about her new position and is looking forward to meeting
the Forbes community with her notebook and pen in hand. She would love you to contact her with your good news, your heart-warming news, your record-breaking stories, your unique stories, your events, your news tips and your photos, whether social, funny or just of interest.
