I am excited to take on the role of Deputy President as well as continuing in the Junior Development Director role. I have a great appreciation of what a modern surf life-saving club needs to be in order to be successful (and sustainable). At the heart of this is protecting the beach going public and as such, I continue to patrol as an active member of the Masochists Patrol (often in the IRB – offering a different perspective on the beauty of our beach) and continue to represent the club at Masters each year. All of my family are actively involved in the club and I see it as a fantastic place for members of all ages to develop new skills and to positively influence the lives of our younger members. Our club is made up of some amazing people – of all ages – and spending time with them – either on the beach, out the back or on the deck at night is what makes our club so great.
