I am a full time single mum and carer for my gorgeous and very talented 19 year old son! I have been an active advocate for my son for all his life as he does not fit into any boxes. He is his own unique shape. He is a DJ and music Producer and I am his biggest fan and manager!
We live in beautiful Ballina in Northern NSW and love travelling to Brisbane for weekends of culture and fun.
I coordinate and facilitate 2 grassroots led groups Community Disability Information Alliance (CDIA) and we have meetings every month in Ballina and in Kirra on the lower Gold Coast!
I love being a part of such an awesome and diverse community and I love sharing what I know to help empower people. After all, Knowledge is power!
I enjoy lots of professional connections and networks locally and enjoy working with families and people with a disability to help them live a life of their design. I have been doing pre NDIS planning with many local families, advocacy and referral work individually and as a group. I follow person centered practices and ABCD principals. I have a Diploma in Community Services Work- Welfare and 3/4 of a Degree in Nursing, certificates in Facilitation, Inclusive Practices for people with a disability, Advocacy Leadership Training and lots of lived experience!
I am a sensitive spiritual woman who loves quiet time, watching movies, time with my friends, seeing live music, dancing the night away to music from 1980s, bellydancing, yogalates, painting my toenails, having a massage and practicing mindfulness as much as I can!
