Groups 1,2 & 3 (All Breeds Judge)

I have always had cats, firstly moggies then my father bred Seal Point Siamese. I met a pair of Burmese in the early 1970’s and fell in total love with them, especially the Blue Burmese. When I settled down in Sydney I went in search of a Blue Burmese and ended up with a Lilac and Chocolate – they converted my partner Don to cats and in particular Burmese. He in turn converted me to Labrador Retrievers. We moved out of the city to Moss Vale – we had space and time so I commenced breeding and showing in 1987 under the prefix Bima. I breed all colours of Burmese and love them all – my favourites are blue, red and blue tortie.

This led to stewarding which gave me a love of many other breeds and in 1994 I commenced a judging course. I completed Group 2 in 1996, Group 3 in 1998 and in 2009 completed Group 1. 

I have judged in most states of Australia as well as in New Zealand.

I have been involved in clubs – club secretary, committee member and am currently President of the Burmese Cat Society of Australasia. I have experience as show manager as well as working in card rooms and trophies, also lots of experience setting up and pulling down shows.

In my other life I am a registered nurse and midwife and currently work in a neonatal nursery. I have experience in management, aged care, education, women’s health, aboriginal health, community health and paediatrics. My other interests are gardening, patchwork and quilting.
