I was born and grew up on a farm in the hills of a very small town called Yarloop in the South West. In tragic circumstances Yarloop was destroyed by a bushfire in 2016, thankfully our family home was saved.
Fast forward a “few” years and I am now married with three children. Throughout 2013 my husband converted a 40-foot school bus into a motor home, we sold our family home in Waroona and in February 2014 we set off to travel Australia. We lived and worked our way around Oz for 3 years.
We have since sold our home on wheels and on the 12th of January we moved to Broome in the North West. We have now settled into our new home and look forward to enjoying all the Kimberley has to offer.
I commenced my journey with Progressive Training as admin support officer in February. I have had the pleasure of meeting Geoff and Kris and I look forward to continuing my work alongside Jamin, providing the SEE program to clients in Broome.
After high school I completed my Diploma of Children’s Services and went on to work in an Out of School Hours Centre for a year and a half. There I got to work closely with the children and build some really great bonds. The centre I worked for then opened a new full time childcare centre, and I was presented with the opportunity to run their Nursery for a year! It was a very exciting time, getting to watch all those babies grow and develop and see their personalities come out! As time progressed, whilst I loved childcare, I found that I had a passion for the administration side of my role, so I left to pursue a career in admin.
I was then lucky enough to be given a chance at a local car dealership where I started out as an admin assistant and within 6 months I had worked my way up to become the accounts and payroll clerk. It was there that I was able to learn and gain valuable experience in all aspects of administration, payroll & accounts, and client relations.
After working with them for the last 8 years, I felt it was time to try my skills with something new and challenging. I then found myself being offered a position at Progressive and I jumped at the opportunity. I look forward to expanding on my skill set and working with the Progressive team to achieve our goals!
