Jim is a born and bred Tasmanian, having lived in Hobart, Oatlands, New Norfolk, Burnie and Launceston as a child. His dad was a government Veterinary Surgeon who worked in many parts of the state.
He's married with one grown daughter and his background is as an educator with 40 years of experience across both the primary and secondary sectors on the north west and west coasts of our beautiful state.
Jim retired 10 years ago and enjoys travelling, reading a good mystery, trying to play golf and spending time with his family and friends.
He and his wife Jenny shifted to this area 5 years ago. They are both enthusiastic members of U3A Port Sorell and really appreciate the positive influence the organisation has made in their lives.
