was born in March half way through the last century at Wau PNG.
I grew up in Laidley, a small town about 100km west of Brisbane. It was a childhood of far greater freedom than seems possible for children today.
At 18 I left for Brisbane and the University of Queensland. I gained a Science degree and a husband, and worked in Medical Research for 10 years. After that I worked as a representative for a Laboratory Equipment company before returning to UQ to obtain a Graduate Diploma in Education in 1991.
