Tanya & her husband Scott grew up west of Bourke and were both educated via distance education until going off to boarding school for their secondary years and then onto University.
Tanya works full-time in town and her husband Scott manages a property north-east of Bourke on the Darling River. They have 4 children who are all at various stages of their education journey.
Scott’s father Wally was a founding member of ICPA in Bourke and both families have been involved in various ways ever since.
As well as being on State Council Tanya is also the Bourke Branch President and looks forward to giving back to ICPA as without it she would not have had the education she received, nor would her children have the opportunities they experience now.
Despite the difficulties of distance and costs of educating children in the bush, Tanya believes it is still a great place to raise a family.
