I lived on the island for a year during 2016-2017. When I moved off the island I missed island life and the incredible community we have here. I have recently bought a house on the island, am delighted to be living back here and am keen to ensure that we do everything to preserve this incredibly special place that we are privileged to call home. For work I head up Marketing for a global IT company. In my spare time you will see me undertaking renovations on my house, paddle boarding, kayaking or walking my little puppy, Mr Darcy. I look forward to being part of the island committee.
Boyd is an accountant and seeks to bring simplicity and clarity to the association’s financials. He’s happy to receive requests for information and answers.
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.
Colin is a retired retail executive. For the last 17 years he has owned and managed the Scotland Island Lodge guest house with his wife Rosemary.
I am a long-term resident of the Northern Beaches, and moved to Scotland Island in 2016 with my partner, Natalie and my three kids – the best move since I moved to Australia from Ireland on a tall ship in 1988. I have been a photographer for over 25 years, with a studio in Mona Vale, servicing the corporate market in photography and video production, Australia-wide. I have a love for the ocean, nature, good food and red wine.
