Why did you pursue a career in the disability sector?
I grew up in a very small village and my parents were always helping others, so helping others just seems a good fit for me.
What do you like most about working at Auscare Support?
Auscare is independent and they are client focused. The Auscare team is passionate, committed, genuine and caring.
Favourite author… I’m a bit of book worm, I always have at least two books on the go. I’m a tragic fan of J D Robb and her ‘In Death’ series, the good guys always win and there’s lots of different and colourful characters in her books. 📙
Favourite band/musician… I have such a mixed music collection, but if I have to choose I love the blues, listening to those powerful voices. Although if I have to do housework I’ll probably put a bit of pop music on. 🥁 🎼 🎸
Do you have a favourite saying or inspirational quote?
Yes, my mantra is “Kind thoughts; Kind words, Kind deeds,” there can never be too much kindness in the world and you never know what is happening in other people’s lives.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have a moodle dog, she’s very cute and fetches my slippers for me as soon as I get home. 🐩
Do you have any hobbies?
I like to try lots of things, I like cooking and jigsaw puzzles and training my dog to do new tricks.
If you could invite anyone to a dinner party (past or present), who would they be?
The Queen, I would want all the gossip on all the interesting people she has met around the world.
Favourite food… Chocolate 😊 – I love to cook so I’m always trying different things, I love Indian because of the spices, Thai because of the lots of fresh leafy green veg, and Moroccan, because they use figs and dates in their cooking. 🍫 🍜 🥬
Favourite holiday destination… Bali, the people are so welcoming, I love the fresh food and the family and village culture. 🏖
