'I had many years as a Family Day Carer, and have worked in long day care for about 18 years. I obtained my Diploma in 2007.

One of my biggest pleasures in life is caring for children. The love and joy I receive from them is endless!

I also enjoy dog showing, gardening and craft. I am showing chihuahua's almost every weekend at the moment - with little success!

I have a great family - my partner Raymond, three grown-up children, and three grandchildren - who support me in whatever I do'.
