What does life look for you now?

I am happily married to Steve, my high school sweetheart and we have 6 children. We have a renovation business, Steve is a musician and I work as a TA for Kindy in the ELC at Radford. My eldest daughter Kirrah has already graduated from Radford in 2011, and I currently have another daughter Lahni(yr 12), and son Ruben(yr 9). We are ridiculously busy, but sort of prefer it that way!

Tell us what you are passionate about?

Im really passionate about my family. I have been a stay at home mum for 17 years(aside from our own business), and I know our kids have benefited from me being at their beck and call!! I still love to play netball, and catching up with friends.

When you were young, what were you hoping to be when you grew up?

I have always wanted to be a school teacher, so 20 years after leaving school, I decided to go back and get my degree. Still going, but will get there eventually!!

What is your favourite Radford moment?

I have a few, but one that stands out is during a french exam, my lovely friend Georgie and I got the giggles. The more we laughed, the more cranky Mr Willet(and his long socks) got. So, so funny!!

Do you have a particular role model or inspirational figure from Radford or now?

I have fond memories of Mr Wigg(possible because I frequented his office), and Mrs Kleeman.

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

Really easy!! I fell into being a mum so early, and the more children I had, I realised that I definitely wanted to be a teacher one day!

Did your further study or career go exactly as you'd planned?

So far yes!

What do you know now, that you wish you'd known when you were at Radford?

Just how good I had it when I was at school. I wish I had really put a bit more effort into school, instead of socialising.

Where are you now?
