I’m an only child and I grew up in Mascot. I have a big extended family that lives in both the Central and South Coast. Before starting my job at Wee Wonders I completed my HSC at JJ Cahill Memorial High School. Through my high school years I studied Exploring Early Childhood. I had a lot of hobbies including: dancing, acting, swimming and art — just to name a few. Dancing was my main hobby and I participated in many competitions over a 16 year period. Performing at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics was the biggest dancing thrill I had. Having thousands of people shouting “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie” as I tapped my way down the stairs was amazing!
I have wanted to be a childcare worker for as long as I can remember and I’m so happy that I found this warm, loving environment. I started at Wee Wonders as a trainee the day I turned 18. I completed my Certificate III and Diploma and then in 2013 I completed my Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood.
I really look forward to starting with my new little group each year and caring for them and teaching them. I don’t look forward to saying goodbye though, and seeing another group of my babies go off to school… Can’t we just keep them forever?!
I would like to thank Siobhan, Josie (Nan), and Patrick (Pa) for giving me the opportunity and guidance over the last 20 years to help me become the childcare worker I am today. Each year here at Wee Wonders I have learnt and grown as a person and I believe I have Siobhan to thank for this as she is a wonderful role model. Thank you also to Sherry for taking over and believing in me and giving me the opportunity to continue doing what I love. I love working here and love working with your children and having a family in my workplace, too.
