Born in Brisbane Qld. Keith was introduced to tennis pre school by his mother who played Ladies’ Social Tennis and continued to do so into her 80’s. Keith attended Toowong State School and played school competition on the very same court AAH currently enjoy, albeit the surface was then ant bed. Keith continued to play inter school fixtures for Brisbane State High, Toowong College, and Toowoomba State High School, thereafter, continued to play competitively throughout Qld at tournament level. He developed an interest in Squash, and over the following 30 years played competition, peaking at State Reserve level. Following a serious back injury retired from Squash, however, was later invited by a Rotary colleague to fill in for their Tennis Season, and at that time did not even own a racquet! From that time onward, Keith embraced the sport once again, invested in a Roger Federer Wilson, and the rest is history. Keith enjoys the many friendships since joining as an AAH Member, and subsequently volunteered, and was elected to the AAH Board in 2023. Keith is a certified Tennis Coach of ATP Professional Coaches Association Keith has spent some 30 years in corporate world, and held executive positions in BNP Paribas, Lloyds Bank, & St George Group, and now owns his own financial services business.
Born in Melbourne, Victoria After relocating from Melbourne to Brisbane in the late 1980’s, we quickly embraced the sunny Queensland lifestyle. As a proud mother of two grown children and a grandmother to two gorgeous little boys, I've cherished the joys of family life. With nearly five decades of experience in the world of education with young children, I finally bid farewell to my teaching job at the close of 2022. I feel privileged to have had such a rewarding career and still can’t resist the occasional relief day. My passions include tennis and hiking, and I've discovered that planning holidays around hiking adventures is my ideal way to explore the world. Through AAH, I've rekindled my love for dancing with Jody and embarked on a journey of acquiring new skills in Tony's woodworking class. I'm eager to connect with our members and look forward to building new friendships within this community.
