"My husband and I have been foster carers since 2003. Since then we have had over 100 children share our home – some for only a few days, others will be with us for a lifetime. Currently, I am Vice Chairperson of Connecting Foster Carers – SA, the peak body for all Alternative Carers in South Australia. Prior to this, I held the position of Treasurer for 4 years. I am also the key Events Manager and enjoy arranging events that enable Carers and Children/Young People to enjoy life-enriching experiences. These have included such varying things as National Conferences through to taking children camping amongst Africa animals. For the past 5 years, I have been involved in bringing together all parties of the care team to consider ways to benefit children in care. I am passionate about seeing best outcomes for young people and respect given to the people who love, nurture, heal and care for these children."
