PROFILE

I am currently a director of the Corporate Nature board representing Cape York NRM where I have been a director 2013 (current chair). I arrived in Cape York eleven years ago, married a Cape York cattleman and have brought four children into the world. Originally I was a psychologist, but I have since become a teacher working in Weipa or around Cape York. I teach my children at home as well as completing business responsibilities. My husband’s family has owned Wolverton Station for forty-six years and my father-in-law sat on the council before retiring. I enjoy participating in committees for the long term benefit of the Cape and has been involved in Cape York Sustainable Futures, Coen Chamber of Commerce, and is currently secretary for Cape York Live Export Group. I contributed to the establishment of the Cape York NRM organisation through participating in the steering committee with other current board members. I am now pursuing further studies through the University of Queensland in Agricultural Science, through a scholarship. I am committed to the Cape for the next thirty years and intend on working hard to ensure I see a sustainable future for my children. It is her home, her world, her life and she loves it.
