Born in Tasmania to a Tasmanian Mother and a Navajo (Native American) Father (who she never knew existed until much later in her life).
She spent her earlier years in the hills of Meander, Northern Tasmania,
After leaving school she worked as a kitchen hand at the local hotel,
and started to learn her craft as a budding country singer performing
at the local hotels, country halls and dances,
and eventually, the childhood dream came true.
