Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m a Parkes local. I was born here and haven’t strayed too far for too long. I love sports like hockey, soccer and water skiing. I love to travel and hope to be planning a trip once travel restrictions are eased.
What do you love about working on Parkes to Narromine?
It’s really exciting to be part of the first stage of Inland Rail. I genuinely believe this project will change the future of freight transport in Australia, and it feels like we’re making history.
What jobs have you worked on in the past?
I’ve been in communications for nearly 20 years. First as a journalist at the Parkes Champion Post and then in communications at Roads and Maritime Services, Department of Primary Industries and Australian Mines. I’ve been really lucky to have been able to work in my chosen field and stay in my hometown.
What do you do in your time off?
I love to cook. If I’m bored, it’s time to bake a cake or cook a curry. I’m usually heavily involved in sports at this time of year, but the COVID-19 restrictions have put all my sports activities on hold. I’ve recently taken up crochet as an alternative to screen time, which has shown me that apparently, I can’t count to three consistently.
How have the Covid-19 restrictions impacted your work?
I’m fortunate that I’m able to do most of my work from home. Working from home has great benefits, like wearing comfy clothes and being assisted by my two large dogs. But there’s definitely been times when I could really do with the comradery and company of my workmates!
