About

Profile Pic

I have been working with young people for the last 20 years in various contexts including the areas of trauma, child protection, protective behaviours and preventative education group work. I have a strong rapport with young people and aim always to have them at the centre and forefront of my interventions. I am dynamic, knowledgeable, funny and interesting.

In more recent years I have focussed my attentions on earlier intervention and group work in schools. It has been my experience that young people learn best together in a safe and facilitated environment. My groups have extended in schools throughout Northern Rivers with new requests for my consent workshops in Sydney in 2020.

I am a conduit for kids voices, using a collation of 20 years experience and anonymous stories to create connection to important learnings from each other, particularly in the areas of consent, protective behaviours and bystander awareness.

I love my work, it continues to inspire and excite me when I see young people come together in a safe, creative environment to learn and share knowledge which they carry into their safer and more insightful future.
