I grew up in Wauchope NSW till I was 7 when my parents moved to Port Macquarie NSW where we stayed till I was 14 and we moved onto a diary farm at John's River NSW that only lasted for 2 years as dad started having Cardiac problems so we moved back to Wauchope.
In 1971 I moved to the Sydney Sanitarium & Hospital to undertake my General Nurse training graduating 10 June 1974. I then went to North Ryde Psychiatric Centre (Macquarie Hospital) to take my Psychiatric Nurse training. After I married we live at Wahroonga then Asquith, till we bought our first home at Mount Colah. I followed that with Mental Retardation Nursing at Marsden Hospital, Westmead. Transferring back to Macquarie Hospital where I obtained the position of Charge Nurse. In 1983 we moved to the Central Coast for work where I had a position in The Nurse Education Centre as a Nurse Educator at Gosford Hospital for 2 years. At this time we were living at East Gosford.
I changed employment to Avondale College School of Nursing at Wahroonga where I Lectured for the next 14.5 years whilst still living on the Coast. We moved to Glenning Valley to a new house we had built. My employment moved to Peat Island on the Hawkesbury River.
I left there in 1999 after separating from Jan and moved into a Town House I bought at Mardi. Still working at Peat Island. After my divorce I bought my present home at Wadalba.
Employment moved to Aged Care Nursing where I worked as an RN in 2 Nursing Homes. I retired from Nursing on the 26th July 2019 a career spanning 48 years and 4 months.
I have a son and daughter and 2 grandsons.
