How long have you lived/worked in Eden?
I moved to Eden with my family 29 years ago and I have worked as the school crossing supervisor at Eden Public School for five years now. I have also been an SES volunteer for 26 years.
What do you like most about your job?
I like seeing all the children that use the crossing grow up from kindergarten to class six, I've also enjoyed spending time in the classroom with the kids doing art. When I told the ladies in the office that I had been employed as the new crossing supervisor, they were just as happy as I was, I feel valued at the school.
What do you like least about your job?
The least favourite part of my job is when people don't stop when I'm standing in the middle of the road, and I almost get hit by cars... or getting sworn at by drivers. I'm just doing my job keeping the kids safe, people should be more considerate.
What's your favourite place in Eden and/or the Bega Valley?
Aslings Beach in Eden in my favourite spot. I love sitting at the beach watching the waves.That's where we scattered my dad's ashes a few years ago.
If you won $1miillion what would you do first?
I would faint, then try to get back up off the floor. I would probably buy a house and put some money aside for my three sons.
What is one thing you cannot live without?
The thing I can't live without is my family.
What are three words that describe Eden best?
Beautiful, nice beaches.
What do you think Eden needs the most as a community?
I think Eden needs more areas for young kids to hang around.
