About Me

I am mother to a son (Simon) and a daughter (Rebecca); grandmother to nine (five girls, four boys); and human to Misty Blue, my blue staffy. I completed Year 12 in Adelaide, and relocated to Brisbane in 1999, mainly due to my children’s involvement in ice-skating.

I am a parkrun addict, which is a 5km walk/run on Saturday mornings. It is a good way to start the weekend. I have done 3 marathons, first one at the age of 59.

I do Zumba, to the surprise of my daughter, who said, ‘Mum, you don’t dance.’ Never too old to start! And I enjoy it. I enjoy family and friend time, browsing through markets, sightseeing, making sun-catchers, trivia evenings, gardening, walking, the sound of birds, watching lightning and swaying gumtrees. Couldn’t live without quality ice cream.

About Work

I have been in the print industry for four decades, working in customer sales, typesetting, bindery, etc. I have been in a supervisory position for half of that time. I want to deliver the best quality job to the customer on time.

I would like to be with InHouse till I retire; I enjoy the friendship, the family atmosphere and the variety of orders (jobs).
