Began nursing in 1968, and continued until 2004 when I undertook Honours in sociology. Initially interested in environmental science, I discovered I had a particular leaning towards sociology, and have since begun a PhD in this field. I am currently studying the social role of colour in Western society, a field which has not been attempted previously and which engenders resistance from hegemonic academics. This resistance appears strongly gender-based and so will inform my final thesis. I continue to develop my interest in environmental issues, particularly those associated with Australian society's impact on the Australian landscape, its waterways and urban communities.
