Hakea loves to write, draw, read and spend time with family, when she is not adventuring around Australia. She has lived and worked all over the country: in Geelong, Pinjarra, Mandurah, Halls Creek and Byron Bay and has worked as a teacher and Head of Department. She has also spent time volunteering in Areyonga (a remote Aboriginal community just outside of Alice Springs) as a university student.
