At this very moment in time I am comfortable with where I am at and who I am.

My three favourite things in life are my family and friends, my motorbikes and my job.

I think it is hard being a woman, it’s just hard, it is difficult to negotiate being a woman. I just feel like it is a really tough job.

I was born in Adelaide but I have lived in Canberra since I was nine. This is my home.

There are a lot of opportunities in Canberra for women to get an excellent education and there is a lot of options in terms of jobs after you have received an education. I don’t think there is anything particularly hard about being a woman in Canberra. If you want something in Canberra you can make it happen.

There are so many things to do and heaps of different ways to keep fit and healthy. I think living in Canberra means we have a really healthy lifestyle—in general.

My perfect day in Canberra would be swimming down at the river with my friends and families. I might even ride my motorbike down there. I don’t go too much in the city, like cafes and that type of thing—it is not really my scene, I would rather be out having a picnic and being in nature. But that’s what I love about Canberra it is the place where nature and the city meet in the middle. For me Canberra is the best of both worlds.
