I am the second oldest of 8 Girls, so being from a large family has helped nurture my negotiation and compromising skills as well as Patience. They have turned out to be great assets to travel thru this ever changing thing called life.
After leaving school, my uncle asked me to come and work in his cafe in the city until I decided what it was I wanted to do for a career. I stayed for eight years.
I left, having enjoyed growing as a person, making lifelong friendships including meeting my husband. It was ,whilst working within the comforts of a happy environment with family. I discovered that I loved working in hospitality and meeting people.
The Cafe was on the street level of a building that was predominately tenanted by small studios occupied by singing tutors, elocution, voice and speech coaching, piano and dance studio.so the likes of Sandy Scott, Renee Geyer and other personalities of the times frequented the cafe and became like family along with all the Teachers and Coaches. This was my introduction to the world of the Arts and Entertainment and I’m still out there enjoying it.
Over the years I have had many varied careers in Hospitality, Customer Service and Community services whilst raising 2 beautiful Sons.
My support of live music, especially Aussie Music and musicians lead me to becoming a Presenter on Lake Macquarie FM where I look forward to starting the listeners week with memorable tunes to help them cruise into their week, putting smiles on their faces or even making them do a little bit of Kitchen dancing. I also plan to keep them up to speed with a ‘What’s on ‘segment for Entertainment and Arts in and around Lake Macquarie.
