I am married to John, with two children, a son, Scott and a daughter, Yvette. My daughter is intellectually impaired and receives support from three local service providers, including P2P. I grew up in Rockhampton and moved to Gladstone in 1987. I previously worked in administration for Government and privately run businesses. I have enjoyed playing sports, such as tennis, squash, netball, touch football, road running and indoor cricket. Wear and tear of joints has restricted involvement in these sports recently. I have volunteered in various roles including netball coach and treasurer for a number of not-for-profit organisations.

Something I’d like to change about the NDIS/Disability Industry/Community
All invoices issued by service providers to be checked so that the services charged for have been provided, before payment is made by the NDIA, i.e. for NDIA managed, Plan Managed and Self-Managed clients.
I love working at P2P because…
Supportive, friendly staff with a wealth of knowledge to call upon for any work related queries. Rewarding work supporting clients with their financial tasks and queries.
When I’m not at work I love…
Gardening, although not a green thumb. Cycling – generally on a stationary bike at the gym. Playing tennis – when my body allows me to.
Something on my bucket list
A river cruise along one of the European rivers.
