How long have you lived in or around Forbes and what is the best thing about living here? About 7 years. Forbes is an amazing community with a beautiful natural landscape and rich heritage.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I work at Forbes Shire Council and look after the Community and Tourism team. My favourite thing about work is my fantastic team and that we get to work with the community to do some great projects and events!
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? I love to read, garden and spend time with my family. I watch a lot of sport, dancing and horse riding and its great fun.
What makes you proud? My kids! For so many reasons. Not just because of their achievements but because of the wonderful humans they are becoming.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose and why? A bird would be pretty cool – imagine being able to fly!
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? For books – Anything by Tim Winton. I like all kinds of music from Sting to the Grigoryan Brothers to Tim McGraw and the Hilltop Hoods.
What is on your bucket list? To travel more with the family. To find the time to be creative and it would be good to be fitter!
What are you really good at? Op shopping for clothes. I can pull some pretty good outfits together from the Vinnies racks. I’m a keen environmentalist so this appeals to me on both a fashion and a “looking after the planet” level.
Tell us about your best holiday ever? Summer holidays on the South Coast are always the best. It’s a time to swim every day, eat too much, watch the cricket, read all those books that have piled up and get to know everyone again.
What makes your day? A clever one liner. It’s always good to have a laugh.
