Fiona and husband Paul arrived in Orange 16 years ago after leaving Scotland. They were actually passing through Orange and decided to stop overnight as their children were restless. Needless to say they didn’t move on and Orange became their home. They arrived in Orange with two children and another on the way it didn’t take long for them to meet up with other parents and develop friendships that they still hold dear to them today. Paul and Fiona love family life and wouldn’t swap it for the world, which is quite unique given that they now have six children in Australia and two more children overseas. Six months ago they also became Foster Parents. They have three grandchildren and feel very blessed.
Fiona is also heavily involved with the community through her Councillor role, Woman of the Year, Health Council, Fairy Sparkle Garden, Star Search, Community Radio Show, Justice of the Peace, Toastmasters and her Guest Speaker appearance at Going Public in October 2006.
Fiona and Paul are passionate about working for the greater good of all families and believe that becoming a family should be an experience that is to be enjoyed and treasured.
Fiona believes that children can be really good teachers and that we just need to stop and take the time to notice what they are showing and telling us. In the future Fiona would like to work on developing and presenting programs that support families.
