  • If we're sitting here a year from now celebrating what a great year it's been for you in this role, what would you say we achieved at Trinity? High demand for places at Trinity due to strong brand awareness levels and a reputation of excellence both online and offline. Public recognition of the benefits of having a Junior campus with the resources many Prep-12 schools on one campus would envy: our own art room, swimming pool, library, air-conditioned classrooms, sports grounds and more, all age-appropriate and offering a gentle passage into our Middle/Senior campus.  Recognition of all that our beautiful Middle/Senior campus offers older students with the John Stapleton Sports Centre and gym, the state-of-the-art David Caldwell Trade Training Centre, the water polo purpose built pool, the amazing Visual and Performing Arts programs and facilities, and so much more.
  • What is your favourite family pastime? Heading down to the beach to meet up with friends for a relaxing day of sun, sand and surf.
  • How did you meet your husband, the love of your life? My husband and I were set up on a date by a mutual friend.
  • What do you do to keep busy? I'm a mum to a five year old and a six year old – I'm always busy.
  • What thing do you not like doing? Cooking.
  • Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the most significant in your life? Probably relocating internationally three times (twice with small children.) Goodbyes never get any easier.
  • Tell us more about yourself; what else can you share with us? Steve, my husband is an identical twin and his twin brother has a daughter six weeks older than our daughter and a son six weeks younger than our son – pretty freaky.
