Welcome Alison skinner!!!
I grew up on my family farm near Leeton. After school I moved to Griffith where I worked as an electrician for Essential Energy for 12 years. I married Carrathool farmer Dane in 2011 and our four children followed soon after – Lucy, Jess, Toby and Elsie. Five years ago we made the move to Wagga and have now settled on our own cattle farm at Big Springs.
I have always enjoyed playing many sports and doing group fitness classes and I enjoy the comradery and friendships you develop participating in these activities. For this reason and my family farming background I thought Active Farmers was a great concept and one I wanted to be a part of. Farming, living rurally and being at home with children all day can be lonely and people’s mental health can be affected by this. It can affect anyone of us at any time. By joining a group like Active Farmers it is a great social outing whilst improving your health.
Over the last two months I have completed my Certificate III in group fitness and I cannot wait to start the program in Ladysmith and Book Book. I look forward to seeing you all there.
