I am a qualified certified practicing Accountant and worked for a number of years in Government. When I had my first child Matthew I made the decision to leave full time work and pursue small business bookkeeping so I could work from home.
When looking for pre-school for Matthew we discovered C&K Everton Park Kindy. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful outdoor environment and the feeling of joy we sensed from the children (& educators).
Our daughter Sarah attended in 2007. In that year I volunteered to be Kindergarten President. I loved being part of this little community and I learned so much from the experience.
In May of 2008 C&K Everton Park was looking for a bookkeeper & I knew I would love working at Kindy. Over the years my role has expanded to include many other “hats” and I have loved being part of this small enthusiastic team.
I am very passionate about community kindergarten. Each year I watch as children grow in their independence, confidence and understanding of self. I learned to be a better parent by watching our educators treat the children as competent and capable.
When not at Kindy:
I love spending time with my friends & family. Now that my children are grown I love when all the family can catch-up. I grew-up in a small beach town, Bowen in North Qld and I love when I can return home to see family and friends and enjoy the beach.
