'My name is Hetty and I have worked at DMP for many years.

I am married with four beautiful grown-up children, and two grand-daughters who I love to spend lots of time with.

One personal achievement in Child Care has been to finish my Advanced Diploma, which I studies part-time over five years and completed in 2005.

I am a quiet achiever whose love of children, empathy, respect and values has kept me in a profession that has seen many positive educational changes over the years.

My leisure time is spent playing tennis, going to the gym, travelling, and toiling in my large overgrown bush garden'.
