Blurb: I fell into Girls’ Brigade about a year after my oldest daughter started. We live 20km out of town, so it was too costly and time consuming to go back and forth and I stayed while GB was on. It was recommended, seeing as I was there, that I should help out, and here I am, 25 years later still helping out! I love the transforming power of the mission of GB… and I love the fun we have.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done? Jumping out of a perfectly working aeroplane for my 40th birthday!

List two items you take with you to the beach and why? Shade and a good book – a great place to relax and catch up on some reading.

Do you prefer Fuschia or Aqua? Fushia – I like warm & autumnal colours.

What is your hometown, and why do you feel like that is your hometown? I grew up in Altona, in the western suburbs of Melbourne. I have lots of good memories of life in Altona – safety and security and lots of friends and fun times.
