'I became a member of Girl Guides as an adult when my daughter joined as a Brownie and her Unit needed a Leader. That was over 20 years ago. Since that time I have committed myself to Guiding as I believe the benefits provided by the Movement are not only for girls and young women but all its members. I have held a number of roles within Guiding and this has enabled me to appreciate the needs of ‘grass roots’ members. In addition to this I have held paid positions within Guiding and clearly understand the ‘business’ requirements of successfully operating the Association. In my working life, outside Guiding, I have effectively led teams of varying sizes to be productive and exceed expectations in constantly changing environments. I believe my work life and volunteering roles have equipped me with the skills and knowledge to successfully fill the role of Director of the Board of Girl Guides NSW & ACT.'
