How long have you lived in or around Forbes and what do you like about living here? I was born and raised in Trundle and went to school for year 11 and 12 at Red Bend. I studied, lived and worked away and came to Forbes 14 years ago. I love the land, the space and the people equally.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy most about where you work? I do lots of lovely things. I am a mother, I teach yoga and meditation and hold gatherings for people to come together and connect. I like learning about the Wiradjuri people and their stories.
What do you do to unwind on weekends? I love reading, watching my little fella play soccer and hanging out with family. I usually watch the Penrith Panthers game on TV.
What are you really good at? Mothering and making ghee.
What makes you laugh the most? Six-year-old humour.
What’s on your bucket list? I don’t have a bucket list! I will see where the road takes me.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself…. My middle name is Alma which is the name of both my grandmothers.
If money was no object, what would you do with your time? I would set up a special space in Forbes for indigenous and non-indigenous women to come together, to heal and to support each other and our communities.
What was your first job? Helping on the farm (unpaid) and working at the Trundle Golfie with Toot Ryan as a kitchen hand (paid).
