I love my volunteer job at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Since implementing Covid-19 safety measures the sanctuary is open again. I enjoy meeting and sharing information on the park's wildlife to visitors very much. In 2018 I volunteered for the GC2018 Games at Metricon Stadium, Carrara. It was the biggest sports event hosted in Queensland history. I'm a retired vocational education trainer and assessor and now I love to garden. My husband Garry is a retired cabinet maker and loves to potter in his shed. We have 2 sons living at home whom work weekdays and 2 married children, and between them 7 grandchildren. Garry and I haven't been away alot but we did go to Europe in 2014 and New Zealand in 2019. One day we hope to go to the USA to visit our daughter and family. I have been an airbnb host for 4 years and believe I have been a good host because I have a happy and helpful personality and at the same time respect other people's privacy, space and confidentiality.
