I m a university lecturer in Perth and love my job as I manage a university preparation course that prepares people for university and provides a pathway into further education. My husband Pete is the Director of National Parks for Western Australia. We have hosted many young people in our home over the years who come to learn English and travel to Australia. As a consequence we have friends all over the world and our children have also become very international, all traveling extensively and studying / living overseas. We love to socialise with friends and family and enjoy good food, wine and travel. We are relaxed, easygoing, low maintenance , socialble Aussies. Living near the beach in sunny Perth means we love the outdoors and we keep fit by walking, cycling, and surfing. My life motto would be 'you gotta have friends'
