I have been privileged to consult on a number of important projects across Tasmania and Australia.  These have included Policy Development and Training Programs, Senate Enquiry Submissions, Recruitment processes and successful Parliamentary lobbying.


I have also been fortunate to be an advocate for bereaved parents in Tasmania and Australia.  My work in this area over the past 10 years has seen legislative change in Tasmania and significant policy changes at Organisational levels.


I currently am the Tasmanian Coordinator for Bears of Hope Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Inc and a Director of Lifeline Tasmania.


I have a Bachelor of Commerce Degree and a Graduate Diploma in Counselling at the University of Tasmania.


I have over 10 years experience in consultancy and counselling with the Department of Health and Human Services, Private Sector and Not for Profit Businesses.
