I became a driving instructor in 2001 after teaching the children of our close family friends. It ignited a passion and I definitely have a talent for it. I am also a tennis coach as well as a social water-skiing instructor, I can't help but to help! I love the great outdoors, everything from motor sports, water-skiing, camping and hiking. I enjoy coaching training and mentoring young people and find that when I’m training them to become safe drivers I am also coaching and mentoring them in many ways to help them become young confident responsible people in our community. I do my part for the community, through my involvement in road safety programs such as the RDYA program, Leightons safe driving program for state schools and the QLD Pcyc Braking the Cycle program. I have worked with juvenile aid, as well as working with employment agencies assisting youth to find employment. Overall, I love being a driving instructor because the satisfaction of seeing the smile on my students face when they have just been told they have passed their test and knowing I have contributed to that new found freedom which is such a massive step in their life... it is something special.
