Matthew and I married in 1999 and in 2001 had our first baby, Quinton. A Few short years later had their next baby, Paige. In 2005 Matthew decided to follow his life long dream of starting a full time Martial Arts academy and I assisted him in the background to start with as Paige was only 3 months old at the time. When Paige was about 1 (Quinn about 3 at the time), I took a more hands on position at Martial Arts Queensland assisting members/customer service off the mat at the academy in Toowong.
A few years on, Matthew and I decided that our family was not complete and along came Austin in 2008. I took a step back to behind the scenes again in head office so that I could work and juggle the kids. We decided one more baby was needed and ended up with twins (didn’t see that coming) and we found ourselves in 2010 with 5 children, three under 14 months. If we weren’t busy before we certainly were now.
So for the last few years I have juggled 5 kids (with Matthew’s help of course) and running the office. It has been a great experience so far and I wouldn’t change a thing
