Location Information

Hobart TAS 7000


My practice background includes 20 years’ experience working in the Community sector, in a variety of roles. I have worked with people who live with co-existing conditions, including complex mental health issues, illnesses and or disabilities, including psychosocial disability. I have worked in Intense Support Service teams with people: at risk of offending / re-offending; on parole or Community Based Orders; banned from accessing the community; and undergoing supervised detoxification. I have worked as a liaison officer and in Case Management.

My personal background includes loved ones with varied lived experience of mental health issues, and severe mental illness. My practice background formed the basis for a deep interest in mental health literacy, and led to me becoming an active Volunteer Ambulance Officer. My passion around supporting and promoting mental health education and changing attitudes towards mental illness, more widely within the community, is closely linked to that lived experience of loved ones.

My formal practice and vocational qualifications include an Advanced Diploma in Community Services Management, Advanced Diploma in Disability, Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and Bachelor of Adult and Applied Learning.

I have been training and teaching since 2006. I am employed by TasTAFE to teach a number of Mental Health First Aid courses, Mental Health awareness training sessions for workplaces. and prisoners, and qualifications from within the Community Services Training Package. I love my work!
