I have been hairdressing for 46 years, so I guess you could say that hairdressing has been a huge part of my life so far. I trained in Karoonda, but in later years, moved to Adelaide where I worked for several employees and had my own mobile service. Returning to Karoonda in 2006 I set up a small business in the main street and also run a mobile service. My business retails in hair products and has expanded into jewellery and fashion accessories.
Over the years I trained as an ambulance office and also in hospitality but always returned to hairdressing.
I keep myself busy on the Farm Fair committee and as the coordinator of the Fashion Parade at the fair. I am also an active member of the Mallee Netball Club plus a few school committees.
