What does life look for you now?

Life in the Foster house is always busy! My now husband James and I have two little girls Neave and Stevie! I work full time in the APS and have done for over 10years and James is a FIFO worker for a SA based engineering company which has him building parts of the new Snowy 2.0.

Tell us what you are passionate about?

We both love cooking and entertaining making everyone feel like they are part of the family. We are also a passionate rugby house #AllBlacks

What is your favourite Radford moment?

The whole experience of Radford was just amazing and one I talk about still! Year 9 camp was an experience that I will remember until I am old and grey

How easy was it to decide what to do in life?

Deciding what to do with your life is never easy, especially at age 17/18: Do I go to uni? Don’t go to uni? What to study? What if I don’t like it? Will I get a job in my field?
Take your time and remember you can always study while working!

What advice do you have for current students?

Enjoy your time at Radford and make the most of it! Make those lasting friendships and memories because adulting is hard!
