In 2009 I’d been working at another publication when it went into receivership. Suddenly jobless for the first time in my life, I came up with the crazy idea that I could start a new publication and get my colleagues who’d also lost their jobs on board. It was risky to say the least, considering I was a single parent of three and had the sum total of $35 in my bank account at the time. But, thankfully the Penrith and St Marys community embraced and supported our project, and against many peoples’ predictions, we are still going strong all these years later. As well as many years experience in journalism, I have in the past been a Licenced Real Estate Agent and a Political Adviser for several members of parliament. I enjoy every minute of my job, am so thankful that Nepean News enjoys the support of local Penrith and St Marys businesses and that I am surrounded by such a great team.
