PROFILE HAZEL HEARDER-FRIEND My childhood and education was as conventional as times, in which I grew up, in Sydney N.S.W. I left school at fifteen, pleasing my parents by taking and keeping a very safe and very boring job in the Public Service for 12 years. It was only after I was alone raising my 3 year old son, that I decided to make the most of lives and explore our options. I was attracted to the humanities, enjoying working with people as opposed to pieces of paper. I had no trouble finding work, as a medical secretary in general practice and specialist rooms. In my spare time, Anthony and I enjoyed the life style of the sun and surf northern beaches and I helped the Red Cross with a program working with school children. Our next move was to the Gold Coast to further my sons career as a chef in the Hospitality Industry. Miraculously, yes I believe in miracles, the Counselling profession opened up to me, firstly with Lifeline doing face to face counselling and then with the newly formed Sexual Support Service. At the time, it was quite a risky business, as every year we battled for government funding to keep the Service going. I worked with women, who had been sexually abused as adults and/or children for over 10 years. This work, which included face to face counselling, groups, court support and on going training, was the most challenging and rewarding I have ever encountered. I was also a committee member of the V.I.E.W. club, helping to raise money for the Smith Family. After my son and his wife were married in a romantic sunset ceremony in Katherine George, David, my husband and I made the huge decision to retire to the Northern Territory, leaving behind the Gold Coast and our close friends. Quite a sea change. We are now happily settled in Durack with our elderly Poodle Beau, our Groodle Mardi and K.T. our huge Rag doll cat. Being grandparents is a special pleasure for us, especially now as our eldest grandchild, Hamish likes to holiday with us. He constantly challenges us with his questions, How do bees make honey and How did you get so old, Nonna? So far we havent had to resort to the rabbits and the Great Wall of China.
