My biggest achievement in 2019 was completing the independent children’s lawyer training program. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. The training was important to me as I work on a lot of parenting matters involving mental health, domestic violence, and growth and development of children, all of which have interested me since my nursing training in the early stages of my adult life.

Keep moving forward. I don’t believe in standing still – there is only a small amount of time that we each have to give to others, which include friends, family and the wider community.
