I was born in Parramatta, NSW, Australia. My paternal forebears, the McKinnons from Isle of Skye, in 1837, came out to Australia under the Dunmore Lang Migration Scheme, and settled in the Hunter River area of NSW
There are NO convicts on either side of my family tree.
After finishing high school, I moved with my family to Sydney, where I gained employment as an office worker, one workplace was with The Australian Womens Weekly.
I married and we moved to a wheat,wool and meat property in the Bingara District, NSW.
After many years of droughts and flooding rains, and with three children, we crossed the border into Queensland, not stopping until the family reached Townsville where we became involved in the hospitality industry.
After attending James Cook University, I moved to Brisbane, then to Gympie where I purchased and ran the Fox Glenn Motel. I now reside in Brisbane.
I love Music, opera, live shows, my great friends, my great family and my great country, Australia.
