What do you think is the culture of Mudgee?
“I think the culture of Mudgee is really good. I think people help out others who are in need and they are also are very intuitive. They are able to pick up when someone needs help or assistance.”
What is a quote you live by?
“A famous quote that I live by is ‘Knowledge is power’.”
“Try and educate yourself as much as you can about things that apply to you whether they apply directly or indirectly. You should always find out information from various sources so you get a good overview from everybody and not just the one type of person.”

What are some words of wisdom or advice you can offer?
“Try and follow a passion you have, but always try to be adaptable because the environment changes around you. Basically, you have to be able to change with the times.”
What was a defining moment in your life?
“My defining moment would probably be when I met my future husband, Bradley James Sleeman. Even though we are different people, he is the other half, he is the yin to my yang.”
“I met another person who had similar ideas and beliefs even though we probably are different in how we communicate that. It’s just like opposites attract, really.”
“He has added to my life two beautiful boys, and just learning another perspective on how to think about things instead of having a tunnel vision.”
