Financa/Fundraising & Out of School Hours Care

My eldest daughter Charli is currently in Grade 1 at Ashby and will be followed by her three younger siblings eventually. As a local business owner  and committed proponent for natural health and sustainability in our community of Geelong West, I am honoured to serve on the school council and contribute in any way that I can. I believe that all humans thrive when surrounded by a strong and supportive community, and since we begin that journey as a child I am greatly appreciative of the beautiful community that Ashby PS has already established for my family to become a part of.

My son Kenneth is in Grade 1 and Emma will be starting Prep in 2021. We have recently relocated from NSW to Geelong. I am a HR/OHS practitioner who has previously worked in the Education and Social Assistance Sectors and hope I can share my skills and experience to assist and make a difference. I am so excited about the opportunity to positively contribute to the school and the school community by becoming a member of the School Council.
