I was born on 2nd August 1960 along with my twin sister Zoe Karen Gentle. Zoe only survived for 9 hours before passing, but for those of you that already know the story of Zoe then the simple message for everyone is simply what is inscribed on her headstone “9 HOURS IS AN ETERNITY HELD IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS’.
Zoe and I were born at Aldershot Military Hospital, Aldershot, Hampshire, United Kingdom. I grew up in Derbyshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire before immigrating to Australia at the age 0f 10. Queensland Australia has been my home since leaving England, I live in the Brisbane suburb of Taigum which is located equal distance between the fabulous Gold and Sunshine Coast beaches.
I am now a retiree, after working various careers within the logistics networks of the Brisbane area with companies the largest and longest career being for 32 years with SEQEB, ENERGEX Electricity Supply Companies. Duties included direct supervision and hands on unloading sorting testing and distribution of millions of dollars of electrical components required to maintain and expand the South East Qld supply network..
I am looking forward to sharing the trustee roles with you all and I cannot wait to see where this particular journey will lead us, thank you.
