IT may seem trite when someone says that they want to help other people.
However, in Fiona Nation’s case she not only means it but lives it.
Born in 1966 in England she came to Australia when she was just two.
Living in Mt Eliza when it was rural, Fiona went to Mt Eliza primary and secondary schools.
“At school I wanted to be a doctor or a nurse,” Fiona explained.
“I suppose that came from my experience with my grandfather who died of throat cancer.
“Even as a 15 year old teenager, I volunteered as a ‘Pink Lady’ at Frankston Hospital.
“I just wanted to help people.”
When she left school Fiona wanted to join the police force and despite passing all the necessities was too young.
