Arlagene has been married to Darryl for 23 years and they have two children Kirsten, 19 and Jayden, 16. She also has two grown foster daughters Veronica & Malarni who now have their own families.
Arlagene believes being a mother is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences of life. She is passionate about providing opportunities for parents to develop greater skills for growing children into responsible little people and loves working with children and young people because she believes that they are our greatest asset.
She has served and been involved for many years in voluntary positions on committees and groups, both in churches and the community, and has supported various aspects of mission in reaching out to communities both here and overseas.
Arlagene loves travelling and has travelled extensively in Australia and overseas and hopes to experience more travelling in the future. She believes travelling is one of the best ways to broaden and expand ones worldview. She also enjoys camping with the family, reading, cooking and hopes to one day (if she can actually find some free time) to write a book!
