She also owned and exhibited Bichon Frise for a couple of years before buying her first Bearded Collie in 1983. Since she has owned, bred and exhibited Beardies exclusively with her partners, Keith and Jill Cronchey, under the Brigadoon prefix and has enjoyed the companionship, love and success that their Beardies have given them. Since attaining her first championship judging licence in 1984 and her All-breeds licence in 1996, she has had the privilege of judging all over Australia, New Zealand, Finland, UK, Thailand and South Africa. She has also been involved with the Judges Training program where she has given lectures, co-facilitated and ran an Aspiring Judges Training Program for 6 years and in 2007, coordinated the Working (Herding) Group Judges Training Program. Since 1971 she has worked on many committees, both Specialist and All Breeds usually as Secretary or President, e.g. Bearded Collie Club Victoria (Secretary 14 years), Scottish Breeds Dog Club (Foundation President 10 years).
