Desley Cowley

Meet Desley

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Desley Cowley and I'm proud to be the Village Manager for Oak Tree Retirement Village Norman Gardens.

My husband Lyle and I have led a diverse life which has afforded us the opportunity to have lived and worked in many amazing places around Australia but Rockhampton is where we feel most at home, and it is here that we have raised and schooled our two children.

For approximately the past 30 years, prior to joining the family friendly Oak Tree Group, I’ve been managing and marketing shopping centres for a range of private and institutional investor owners.

I’m extremely passionate about our community, helping others and making a meaningful contribution and am very active in a few groups around town. As President of Capricornia Branch of National Seniors Australia, a member of the CQ University Rockhampton Regional Engagement Committee and a committee member of the Regional Women’s Network CQ (RWNCQ) I’m determined to make a difference.

What I love about Oak Tree Norman Gardens is the fabulous affordable opportunity it offers to seniors. Located in the newly established Crestwood Estate, we are surrounded by prestigious neighbouring properties and are fortunate to have Mt Archer as our backdrop. Arguably Rockhampton’s most highly sought after new land release, Oak Tree offers a desirable living location, with beautiful homes and recreational facilities, for a relaxed retirement lifestyle.

I am extremely excited to join the Oak Tree team and look forward to making a difference to the lives of our residents and extended families.
