Personal Bio

I am the mother of 2 adult daughters, both living & studying in Sydney. There's one left in the nest and he is 16 years old, plus a supportive and hardworking husband.... My husband and I have been co-owners of Port Macquarie Taxis for 8 years, however my role to oversee Media and Community Relations on behalf of the business has only been introduced since June 2016. The point to point passenger transport industry and more specifically the taxi industry, has undergone a major disruption in the last twelve months with government imposed reforms that has endorsed Ridesharing competition. It became apparent that with change, the need to adapt in remaining relevant as a taxi business in this industry was absolutely vital. Hence my role to oversee Media and Community Relations evolved. I am a natural networker and really enjoy working to build genuine relationships with customers, business alliances and community initiatives. I am also very proud to be a Committee Member of HBWN, fulfilling the role of Membership Coordinator for the fourth year in 2017. I am very grateful for the personal and professional rewards I receive in this role and love meeting and constantly learning from the wonderful women associated with this network. Launching a youth membership that embodies the HBWN ethos of Educating, Empowering & Encouraging is a key focus of my portfolio for 2017. Working with a passionate and motivated sub -committee of female youth leaders in our community will see this level of membership we have called the “FreeThinkers” develop as an exciting framework to support and celebrate young women realising their dreams and career aspirations.
