I have worked at Mt Eymard for around 12 years. Working at Mt Eymard has been very rewarding. Our residents all have stories to tell, some pretty amazing ones. It is a pleasure to be part of their lives. The main building has had a lot of history - Mt Eymard has been a private residence, a monastery and a conference centre before it became a retirement Village, not to mention the beautiful gardens.
I love spending time with my family and our dog Harley. I like the outdoors whether it’s bushwalking, camping or gardening.
We have a large country, with so much beauty. We camped at Uluru in 2019, it was amazing! We saw it both at sunrise and sunset.
My family line designed the Bowman Flag. The oldest known locally designed flag in Australia was created by John and Honor Bowman in 1806 and it is the first known flag to have a kangaroo and emu on it.
My family is what I’m most proud of especially over the horrible fire season we had 2019/2020. They spent so many hours on the fire line while still working to the point of exhaustion.
While I have met a few famous people, my most favourite memory is meeting Darth Vader when I was a child.
How hard is it to pick a favourite movie! I can’t pick one favourite movie, so my shortlist is Ferris Bueller’s day off- John Wick series – The Note Book- Sharknado-Back to the Future.
