I was born and lived in Sydney until moving to a rural area about 13 years ago. Showing western horses for 20 years was a big part of my life outside of work, successfully competing at state and national level. Being married with a child has turned me to art and in particular, painting and sketching which has filled every spare moment and every corner of the house.
Moving on to my work history, I graduated from Cerdon College High School in 1983 and started working at Ciba Geigy as a process line inspector until the Smithfield factory closure in 1984.
Later that year I started working at Associated Lighting Industries, moving from the factory to an office position in the first year. There, I was introduced to manual stock control, order entry and invoicing. Associated Lighting Industries then became part of Thorn Lighting and in 1991 I took a voluntary redundancy.
I started working for Garry Jones at Finished Products Pty Ltd in March of 1992 and have seen many transformations, three factory moves and the change to Impreglon Australia Pty Ltd. Initially my duties included general administration, bill of material, machine loading, stock control and reporting and then taking on the role of Internal Sales co-ordinator and customer liaison, with invoicing, purchasing and customer enquiries filling most of my time.
I have had many roles throughout the company and have gained much knowledge in areas of metal finishing, accounts, purchasing, payroll and helping to develop our quality management system. Gaining certificates in Top management, Auditing skills course in 2005, Certificate in Process Management in 2012, Environmental Management Systems course in 2012, ISO9001-2015 Transition course in 2017.
My current role is in the quality department maintaining the Quality management system, internal auditing of processes and systems, developing new documentation and helping to ensure ongoing certification to ISO9001.
I have worked with many people over the years and had some amazing teachers, the managers and staff at Impreglon Australia are among my favourites.
