I entered the Cat Fancy in 1975, with the purchase of a lovely Chinchilla Persian. After a few shows I was hooked and therefore was the beginning of my breeding career. After breeding Silver Persians for over 30 years, I decided a new direction was in the future and my attention turned to breeding solid and tortoiseshell Persians, which I bred very successfully over the past 10 years. I now enter my 44th year in the Cat Fancy having completed the Group 1 Judges Course as a Probationary Judge.
I am a Life Member and past Secretary of Pedigreed Persian Cat Club and also a Life Member, past President and Committee member of the Feline Control Council (Victoria) Inc. I still enjoy showing and continue my involvement as Show Manager/Returning Officer for the FCCV Committee run shows.
In my personal life I had worked in the legal profession for 30 years as a Legal Secretary until enjoying a short retirement of 8 years, now working as a partner in our Motor Vehicle Repair business, attending to office work and payroll.
I am looking forward to judging all your beautiful cats and kittens as a new phase of my life in the Cat Fancy continues.
