What was your early life like? 

My father died when I was 10 years old and my mother was left a young widow to raise three children. She did a great job of single parenting but we were also most fortunate to live in a very supportive community where friends and neighbours provided love, support and guidance that continued over many years. It has left me with a lasting sense of the importance of family, work and personal relationships.

I have always been very keen on sport and I still love playing with great friends in a healthy, competitive environment. I know this passion has been a factor in the career decisions I have made.
