Rose Siva | Awaken Your ResourcefulnessToday’s pod guest is a wonderful empty nester, grandmother, and author of children’s books: Rose SivaRose has had a lifelong love of books and reading – and dinosaurs. When her first career choice (looking after the Queen's horses) fell through, she immediately decided she would be an archaeologist so she could dig up dinosaurs.However real life got in the way of her dreams at age six, and many years and two kids later she found herself running a private education business with a focus on learning and reading skills. By chance Rose attended a lecture on Queensland Dinosaurs, which opened up an opportunity for her to volunteer to work on real dinosaur bones in Winton in 2008. With a reliable 4WD, two weeks of spare time, and a can-do attitude, she found herself camped in the shearers’ quarters on the Elliot property some distance from Winton where a number of dinosaur bones had been found. There she learned how to be preparator and is now a lifetime supporter of what is now the Australian Age of Dinosaurs.It was a pleasure to have Rose on as our guest, a woman who takes life in her stride, showing much resilience, resourcefulness and a “can-do” attitude, as she reinvented herself and adapted to many changes along the way.
