I am based at Keith in the south east of South Australia where I farm with my husband. I am happy to travel. I have Cert 4 in Training & Assessment and Cert 4 in Basic Emergency Care, also am Childsafe Team Leader and have current First Aid. I have always been involved in our community through women's ag groups, church - outreach & youth group leader, ambulance & sport. As a volunteer ambulance officer for the past 10 years I also co ordinate training for the ambulance team at Keith. I am employed by SA Ambulance to present training for new volunteers in regional SA and by an RTO to present General First Aid. Previously I have been involved in organising workshops around work life balance and other community events which provide education around mental health/stress/self care. Through both personal and professional experience, I have seen the effect that poor mental health can have on quality of life for all ages and know the difference early intervention makes when someone is becoming unwell. I am very motivated to expand knowledge around mental health problems, especially in rural areas and enjoy presenting both the Standard and Youth courses in regional areas as well as metro. I am also accredited to present MHFA for Financial Counsellors and Blended MHFA for White Collar Workplace face to face sessions. Happy to discuss flexible delivery eg. 2 full days/1 full day + 2 evening sessions.. Presenting training energises me and feedback says I am adept and able to engage with participants positively.
