“I enjoy gardening, hiking, and cooking international cuisines.”
Brief info about your family?
“I have a husband, son, and an African Grey Parrot. My husband works hard to make sure I’m happy. His favorite quote is “Happy wife, happy life.” My son is a high schooler and thinks mum is no longer “cool!” I like to remind him otherwise. My crazy parrot that is too vocal for his own good.”
An interesting fact about you?

If you had to choose a celebrity to play you in a documentary about your life, who would it be, and why?
“It would have to be Courteney Cox (AKA Monica Geller from Friends). My work colleagues often have referred to me as Monica. I guess they were spot on because my son just started watching Friends on Netflix, and says “Mum, you are such a Monica.” I have to admit: I like Monica a lot.”
