While studying commerce at university I began advocating for better mental health support for young people in Australia, especially young people in migrant and refugee communities.

Before CMHL, I supported families and carers as a Carer Peer Support Worker at Preston PARC as well as directing my own co-design mediation company, Bridging Us, which I'm proud to still be running.

Now as the Carer Workforce Project Lead, I will be leading co-design projects looking at how mental health services can sustainably employ, and support lived experienced workers.

Outside of work, I love to hike, I'm an avid reader of fantasy and history, and I just can't stop learning more languages.
