Qualified Social Worker, graduating in 2011 i have been very passionate about Mental Health Community Education and working alongside people who may be experiencing Mental Illness or Mental Health challenges.

Previous roles in Mental Health promotion and Psychosocial support have included PHaMs (Personal Helpers and Mentors Service) Mental Health worker and Team Leader. Coordinator of Anglicare's Community Services Glenorchy office, which included a trans disciplinary team of professionals who provided support in the areas of Mental Health, NDIS, Housing, Alcohol and other Drug Programs as well as Counselling. My current role is a Customer Engagement Specialist and this allows me to speak with people when they are seeking or considering support. My role is to complete intake and allocation, refer to other services as necessary and to follow up with Customers who engage with our services for feedback.

I have previously been involved and facilitated initiatives to reduce stigma for people who are diagnosed with a Mental illness or who are experiencing challengs. These initiatives were in various rural communities and at a number of more local events. I have also been part of stakeholder teams who provided support post-suicide. I am very passionate to facilitate the Mental Health First Aid course to anyone in the community and i believe my experience in the area will assist people to have an interactive and engaging facilitator where both participants and myself can increase our knowledge.

Please contact me if you would like further information about an upcoming course or if you have a specific request for your community, workplace, sporting group etc. I am available to co-facilitate if you require this, at my organisations discretion.

My ability to adapt with people from various backgrounds will make people feel comfortable and willing to engage in this evidence based course and i look forward to talking more soon.
