What could be better than a hot Christmas lunch in the middle of July 🎄 Huge thank you to Beaconsfield House for not only a fabulous spread, but wonderful company.

In awe of how hard the Beauty Point Bowls Club has worked (I’m talking about you Greg!!) to build the new unisex disability and ladies toilets. I know Sarah Courtney MP will be thrilled to see this. Thank you so much for including me in your special lunch to celebrate the clubs achievements over the past year.

We laughed, we cried and we remembered Alex Gadomski and Maddie Riewoldt The Alex Gadomski Fellowship Maddie Riewoldt's Vision. To stand beside Alex's parents, Paul and Janet, knowing of the endless pain of losing their son Alex at the age of 21 to Bone Marrow Failure is beyond hard and every year I host this event fighting back the tears wondering if I could be as strong as they are if it were my son. Our only path is to raise money for research into Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes which is done through the Menzies Research Centre. What on honour to interview Dr Kirsten Fairfax & Ariel Simpson who work each day to try and find better treatments and a cure. Paul & Janet, your courage is inspiring and heartbreaking all at once.

"The Curve of Nature" Mural - Students from Riverside Primary School, Launceston have helped local mural artist Melski McVee Artist bring the wall to life using the paint-by-numbers method and creating a depiction of the Tamar Island Wetlands and the elegant swan. A big thank you goes to the students for helping brighten the walls in the centre.

I always walk away from sharing a morning with Probus feeling inspired and just a little wiser. Thank you to my colleague Tania Rattray MLC for sharing this lovely time with us all.

August 18th is the day we pause and reflect on the service of our Vietnam Veterans. Lest we forget.

What a treat to be invited to my Son's school, East Launceston Primary School, to share a little about my role in the Legislative Council. Really good questions from these bright young minds.

Speaking on behalf of Minister Courtney for Events. The Australian Musical Theatre Festival is held annually for the musical theatre industry and the Tasmanian community. So many workshops, shows and events! A great line up of national and Tasmanian talent and some stunning Australian shows.

Tassie Leaders step forward!! How inspiring to attend the Tasmanian Leaders Program Graduation. Such a diverse range of community leaders taking part in this program.

A police officer, a fire station officer and an ambulance officer. All Tasmanian women who have forged the path for the generations who have followed them into careers in the frontline.

18 new inductees onto the Tasmanian Honour Roll of Women including the fabulous Janine Healey for her service to the arts, business, community and human rights.

It may not have been the best weather but enthusiasm was high at the Port Dalrymple Yacht Club Woman on Water.

Clown Doctors are in town! Launching the Annual Road Side Appeal at the LGH, raising money to keep our beautiful clown doctors in our public hospitals across Tasmania.

Introducing Laura Moore. I am so delighted to introduce my Electorate Officer. Laura is an extraordinary Tasmanian woman who’s warmth, enthusiasm and professionalism will be a huge asset to our beautiful electorate of Rosevears (and if you think you recognise her, well among her many talents, she also presented the weekend weather for many years).

Laura lives with her husband and two little boys in the heart of our electorate, Legana.

The recently opened Legana Pump Track

Great to be able to sit this afternoon and chat at Masonic Care, Tamar Court. This is such a wonderful example - always looking out for each other. Always feels like a home away from home spending time at Exeter when I pop in for a visit.

As Vice Patron of the Port Dalrymple Yacht Club it’s great to be part of a discussion with Bridget Archer MP and club members around the slipway environmental upgrade.

Reunited with my commerce teacher, Marg Oliver from TAFE after 34 years. Congratulations on 40 years of service at TAFE and to all those recognised at the Premier's Long Service Recognition Event in Launceston.

Congratulations to the recipients of the Premier’s Long Service Recognition, celebrating those who have worked across Government for 40 years.

THANK YOU ROSEVEARS!!! I am so humbled that you have trusted me to be our community’s representative in Tasmania’s Legislative Council. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with every one of you as we rebuild Tasmania. A special thank you to my small but loyal team ... and above all my husband and children who took this journey with me 💙
