What do you love about working at IPA?
What I love and enjoy about my job at Paradise Park and IPA, is that I visualise it as a giant family that collaborates to achieve positive outcomes for children and the community around us. IPA is forever in high spirits and is consistent with it’s on-going support for every participant.

What is your favourite childhood play memory?
My childhood was filled with fields, mud, trees and pretend play, but my favourite childhood play memory will always be the ability to use my imagination to my own advantage. Turning a cardboard box into a house, or a single tree into a jungle.
