What do you love about your role?

I enjoy the daily challenges and diversity of tasks and being part of a great team. No two days are the same. I strive to complete all my tasks in a positive and time effective manner. I also enjoy the interaction with residents and staff and seeing their smiling faces.

Career background?

I was a mechanical fitter working within the coal mining industry. I spentĀ  20 years as a Police Officer in NSW then went into company management dealing with Queensland Health public and private hospitals. I was state manager of NSW/ACT for large industrial equipment company and was in contract management for large companies and defence. Most recently I worked as the Maintenance Manager at Fraser Island, in aged care and retirement villages and I also had my own business in general home maintenance.

In my short time at Jimbelunga I have found the staff and residents very welcoming. I have found the team spirit at Jimbelunga a happy one and hope to play a part in creating more happiness at Jimbelunga.

Hobbies outside of work?

I love to travel. I have travelled overseas to many countries and enjoy experiencing different ways of life and cultures. I enjoy all outdoor activities especially surfing, camping and getting away. I also like riding my motorcycle and riding with friends.
