PROJECT MANAGER / RENOVATOR / RESTORER / WHATEVER SHE NEEDS TO BE
Have you ever wanted to restore a run down 18th century château in the south of France?? Yep...us too! In this edition of the she wear In her shoes series, we meet an inspiring Australian woman (who together with her fiancé Tim) is doing just that!
This is a story not to miss!! Felicity Selkirk is an inspirational Aussie woman who moved to France, purchased the 105 room Château de Purnon (located in the commune of Verrue in the department of Vienne) and is restoring it to its former glory. We've been following Felicity's journey for some time now and watching in awe at the beautiful work they are completing.
It's a massive job, yet a wonderfully beautiful project. We hope you enjoy Felicity's story!

I love the challenge of solving a difficult renovation problem and coming up with creative solutions. Because I am passionate about the construction industry and believe there should be more women in the industry, a good portion of my life is dedicated to spreading this message.
~ Rachael, Licensed Builder
The beauty of the health industry is that you never need to be bored. I’ve worked in underground mines, rural and remote communities, hospitals and prisons. I’ve delivered babies and puppies, set a broken leg on a calf, retrieved casualties from underground mines and copper smelters, and worked with high security prisoners.
~ Gabrielle, Nurse
If it’s going to be, it’s up to me ....
No matter what, keep putting one step in front of the other, it may take more steps some days, but you will reach the destination.
~ Helen, Federal Court of Australia
Give it a go!
Just because it is traditionally a ‘man’s world’ or male dominated field, does not mean that you can’t.
