My name is Fabienne. Before you ask, yes I am French. Our family bought a property on the island ten years ago and we finally made it here in January, 2018 now that our children are old enough to be at school. I am from a rural background and love that natural aspect of Scotland Island. My work revolves around hydrogeology or groundwater resources management if you prefer. When I get some time, I love baking, cooking and throwing pots and bowls (ceramics).
Anne has lived on the island for ten years with her husband and daughter, who is now away at university. Before moving back to Australia she lived in the Pacific and Asia, working as a primary school and TESOL teacher. She now does private tutoring, and loves gardening, particularly with native plants.

In March 2017, I moved to the island with my husband and three kids – undoubtedly the best move ever! I grew up in Switzerland and New Zealand and have moved between the two numerous times. After teaching English and German as a Second Language for many years, I now freelance as an editor and translator. I enjoy unsuccessfully circumnavigating cultural faux pas, baking inedible cakes and falling asleep before the opening credits of a film. As a SIRA member, I want to contribute to island life by bringing the newbie-but-eager-to-learn, family-with-smallish-children perspective to this merry round of island residents.
