Marjorie was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands but has spent nearly all her life in Australia, now living in Perth. After training as a primary school teacher, Marjorie’s career path was interrupted by the birth and upbringing of her four children who are now grown with children of their own – 11 of them.
Instead of returning to teaching Marjorie worked for Australia Post, the Department of Defence in civilian and military roles, and is currently an Assistant Director at the National Archives of Australia where she leads the Perth reference team, providing reading room and remote reference assistance to researchers from all over Australia, and indeed the world.
As she approaches her senior years Marjorie has begun to reconnect with her Dutch heritage. She looks forward to being able to use some of her years of acquired experience to support CURA In-Home Care.
