I was born in a small town in Africa. Selukwe, Rhodesia / Zimbabwe in 1950.
I was fortunate to have parents who believed children were ‘apprentice adults’ and my childhood was the opposite of many of my contemporaries who were ‘seen and not heard’. No subject was taboo – and we were encouraged to discuss things we had learned during one of the soirees at any time afterwards. Sex education at it’s best.

My parents instilled in me the belief that anything was possible if I applied myself and I was encouraged to follow my dream to experience different occupations and travel.
I have lived and worked in Rhodesia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, UK, and Australia.
I have three daughters, four grandchildren and have been with my partner Ken for the past five years.
Ken and I have been living aboard our 10m Adams steel sailboat, SV Nichola for the past three years. We have sailed over 9000 nautical miles and have explored the East coast of Australia, Lord Howe Island, New Zealand’s north island, Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia and returned to Tasmania.
