Bio

Since 2009 I have been responsible for the development or coordination of Equity and Diversity programs such as Equity Scholarships and Grants, LGBTIQ+ Ally, Access Schemes, Mental Health First Aid, Courageous Conversations about Race, Refugee Support, and Cultural and Spiritual Diversity resources. Currently working with the Student Services team at CSU, I look to identify barriers to address in order to increase awareness and participation of groups currently underrepresented at University. I believe through these programs and the support of individual students along their journey, we can help to close the gap for those who may have previously felt that study and a chance at a better life was beyond them.

As a Mental Health First Aid Instructor I aim to raise the profile of Mental Health issues and of the MHFA program throughout the CSU Community, and to coordinate and provide Mental Health First Aid training for CSU staff and students.
