Gladstone, Rockhampton, FITZROY AREA
Before I entered this whirlwind of a career, for 26 years I owned and operated a small independent book shop in the coastal Queensland town where I live. Being my own boss has always seemed to suit my independent nature and I'd have to say I'm a bit of a free spirit.
I have worked in a number of different areas in my life, starting out with secretarial and accounting before having children. I then worked for the Premier of Tasmania for a few years before moving to Queensland and then working in the agricultural industry.
I obtained a Cert IV in Financial Services (bookkeeping) at about the same time as I became an Authorised Civil Celebrant. Since then I have predominantly worked from a home base in both the bookkeeping and celebrancy areas. I am also a Justice of the Peace Qualified. Hello, my name is Cheryl Pitchford and I live in Rockhampton
