Twenty-two years is a long time to work somewhere. You could say that I grew up with Hydro Tasmania in my blood.

My father, Geoff Apted, worked on construction of Meadowbank Dam [on the River Derwent, this dam impounds water for a As a family, we moved to Strathgordon [the village built to construct the MW Gordon power station] when I was 3 years old, and I went to primary school at Strathgordon. I remember my father coming home from work and telling us about the strange foods many of the migrants [who arrived during and after WWII] would bring in their lunch boxes.

We were fascinated that someone could eat whole chilies or black pudding for lunch! These were things we had never even seen at our dinner table. I Looking for a down Zeehan girl up in Hydro Tasmania villages and, like my brothers and sister, went to work for Hydro Tasmania straight out of school. So as you can imagine, I witnessed a lot of change. My favorite task was taking the rain gauge readings each morning.

I felt very important as I had to take the reading at precisely 9 a. You could say I have been a bit of a trailblazer. I was the first girl to work at Stringers Creek now the site of Reece Dam and I remained the only female for some time. There were no female engineers around in those days. I worked there until the Zeehan bushfires went through the site and burned down the only female toilet on site.

It made for some interesting encounters! When I later moved into the office environment in the s section at Tullah, I was the first person to operate an electric typewriter in the office. We only had one! And at the tender age of 17, I was acting Paymaster for three months during the height of the West Coast Construction era.

There were more than 2, people on the payroll and we paid everyone in cash.

I remember the day I was given the combination to the huge bank safe. Again, I felt very important and responsible! They were more innocent times back then. We worked hard nothing compared to the effort we would put in now of course. We mucked around a lot and created our own fun.

Some of the practical jokes we played would probably get us fired today — but it was all harmless and a typical part of Hydro village life. We were very insulated. I was in the first group of girls who applied for an apprenticeship with Hydro. There were three of us and we were not accepted into the program. I was working on the West Coast at the height of the Franklin Dam debate — a time I remember as volatile and unsettling. In later years, I became friends with one of those original greenies and learned he was proud to have been one of the protestors who had travelled down from Sunbury in Victoria, chained himself to a bulldozer and been arrested for what he believed in.

Life moved on and after a year in the Queenstown Distribution Branch office, I served a short stint in the Burnie Customer Looking for a down Zeehan girl area, where I was to take on a role as relief clerk for the North West Coast.

This involved travelling to regional depots relieving people who had taken annual leave and included work at Devonport, Deloraine, Ulverstone, Wynyard and a six week posting at Smithton depot. I guess it was romance that made me move to the thriving metropolis of Hobart to work in There, my series of firsts continued. I was a bit daunted when he asked me to crawl through a small hole in the side of the machine to take us underneath the runner, where our work occurred.

It was a bit scary but such a great experience. There were plenty of those at Hydro. Not one to settle for simple office work, I got involved in carrying out oil filtration work to test for particles in the governor oil. I even went to Sydney to complete a two-day course on oil filtration. I just had a penchant for getting involved in the more non-traditional things, and at one stage a couple of the guys thought it would be fun to call me the Chief Lubricating Officer! It was a wonderful time.

We were a social group and great friends both inside and outside of work. We worked hard and played pretty hard as well! Those who were around at that time will remember the wonderful Bob Moore who was our boss and mentor. Bob always encouraged us to strive for excellence and to step outside of our comfort zone, and when I decided I needed a career change, he was a great supporter.

Due to some unexpected circumstances, my life took a different path and I went off to explore the world outside of Hydro for a while. I swore it was only temporary while I found something better. Strangely enough, my series of firsts continued.

I became the first person to work as the support officer for Business Development, helped to set up the first Basslink office, and went on to become the first person to have a role solely dedicated to marketing in the Consulting Business. Finally, I moved into the Public Relations Team into a newly created role that took me to the end of my tenure with Hydro. The temporary turned into eight more great years. There have been many highlights of my years with Hydro Tasmania, but ones I particularly remember include:.

The most important part of working there — and Looking for a down Zeehan girl the reason I stayed so long — were the people. We were Hydro people! Those people believed in me and helped me to believe in myself. Many strong friendships developed, which have continued.

I was fortunate to be involved in so many different areas of the organization. The opportunities presented always allowed me to stretch myself and to try new things. All of those things have made me a better person and I hope I have left at least some small footprint behind. No matter how long its been, it still makes me smile to run into old Hydro colleagues in the street. She spent 22 years with the company and is now business development director with Cancer Council Tasmania, among other roles.
