The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph… no one will be counting your words… probably)
A Sydney born and bred girl ~ from the “Shire” actually (don’t even think of comparing me to that tv show); my dad an Aussie and my mother Italian ~ Sicilian actually…..yes that is where the Mafia resides! I also have a sister 3 yrs younger than me.
As a child I was always shy and very sensitive, which I can now see one of my daughters is the same way ~ but perhaps more extreme than I ever was (I may have to confirm this with my own mother).
I went to school, high-school (did yr 12) and then onto TAFE the following year. There I did a Certificate in Office Administration, a basic LEGAL Secretary and Corporate Presentation / Hospitality course too.
Meanwhile during my TAFE studies, I had a part-time job at Pizza Hut which I did for 3 yrs. After my TAFE course I worked at several places as Receptionist by day (a nine to five job) while being a Pizza gal by night (normally did the night shift 6 – 11 but most times I finished at 12 or 1.00am with the lock up shift) for 5 days a week and weekends too.
During my early career, I got sick of front desk work and answering telephones (which I did for 3 plus years) and decided to take a year off and I got into retail. I became a check-out chick at my local Woollies (a fill in job) and eventually moved into the Telstra Shop (yes I know Telstra is a nasty word; back then I am sure they were more friendly). I worked in the Mobile Net department and there I found my love of technology and a knack for fixing faulty phones! (I was in the faults department and sales), I worked at the local Westfield shopping centre….which was a great place indeed!
Around this time I met my hubby to be in 96/97 and in 1998 we were married.
The rest is history; with 7 beautiful children to prove it.
Hubby travelled constantly with his career (being a Chemical Engineer) while I held the fought. However one location we lived was Nyngan and rural outback town and I loved it. From there we moved around Sydney and then made our final home here in Melbourne!
