Born and raised in Brisbane, Queensland my local roots are well established. I’m passionate about the work of KENG and community participation has always been something I’ve taken pride in. After joining the State Emergency Service I took on a volunteer training role as a core skills trainer and am also a qualified Justice of the Peace.
I feel connected to the work of KENG and their multidisciplinary approach to tackling diverse community needs. This whole of community approach is an inclusive composition of supportive programs and complementary services which encourage engagement.
As a recently single mother of almost school age children and working full time as an IT Manager, I’m seeking to give something back to a community which has shown me time and time again that passion and determination go a long way. I’m looking to inspire my children in the hope that they will grow up to see that giving back is a rewarding experience.
