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 transferred around 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 8 years ago and enjoys travelling in his van, 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 2 years ago. They have both been enthusiastic members of U3A Port Sorell and really appreciate the positive influence the organisation has made in their lives
