Bio

Melanie holds a Bachelor of Social Work degree, completed with honours, a path which stemmed from a passion to make positive change.

During Melanie's professional career she has undertaken many diverse roles in both not-for-profit and corporate businesses within teams of all sizes. In the not-for-profit sector Melanie fulfilled positions such as a Children's Domestic Violence Counselor, Youth Worker developing engagement programs for 'disengaged, at risk' young people, and facilitated the development of a community collaboration team supporting local domestic violence refuges and women escaping violent situations.

In a corporate workplace Melanie has worked within the People & Culture and Human Resources disciplines within large global businesses, with a specific focus on employee wellbeing & benefits, stakeholder engagement, team alignment dynamics and learning & development. It was during Melanie's 6 year career spent working offshore (FIFO) in the oil and gas sector that truly shone a light on the gap in proactive mental health support that redirected Melanie's professional journey. Since then, Melanie has influenced a shift in mental health response and culture in corporate and project environments. She has been a keynote speaker in several Oil & Gas safety forums discussing her innovative approach in addressing mental health within the industry and has been professionally recognised for her creation, development and implementation of an award-winning FIFO mental health and holistic wellbeing program.

Melanie's passion and strengths in this area have also aligned to the development of corporate mental health strategy and Indigenous engagement initiatives, as well as organisation cultural alignment. Melanie has recently travelled abroad to the USA, UAE, throughout the Asia Pacific region and within Australia as a member of a 14 person executive team individually selected by the company's CEO to facilitate a cultural integration initiative (for a 40,000 employee global business).

Melanie has now co-founded an organisation called 'High Resolution' centering its service delivery on providing specialist advice to businesses in addressing their company culture, development of mental health strategy and employee engagement & wellbeing initiatives. At High Resolution, the wellbeing of people is not only a focus, it's a passion. High Resolution’s vision is for every employer to create a positive workplace; one which prioritises the wellbeing of their employees, with a specific focus on mental health and culture.

Melanie's diverse experience in varied industries allows her to present and relate her experiences to a range of sectors including energy & resources, government & statutory authority, transport, manufacturing, construction, aged care, financial services, hospitality & tourism as well as others perhaps not listed.

The Standard Mental Health First Aid Course provides a pathway for people just like you to become more informed, better equipped, and feel supported in taking action to respond to someone who may be developing or experiencing a mental health problem. This course supports the reduction in stigmatising attitudes toward mental illness and also enhances the likelihood for early intervention which is paramount in prevention of mental health problems becoming more serious. An investment in addressing mental health both in society and within the workplace is both empowering and imperative.

With a boundless zeal for enriching the experiences of people within the workplace, Melanie presents her courses in a relatable, engaging and high energy style. Melanie hopes to continue the mental health conversation with you, your community and/or your team.
