I joined the wonderful CMHL team in July 2023. I commenced my lived experience work in 2020 as a carer consultant and, as so many of us do, I discovered it ‘by accident’. Who knew that my life experience would bring me such an incredible work experience?

Working in the development of the Lived Experience workforce is so rewarding. I believe that as a workforce, we can continue to make outstanding contributions to mental health. I have networked and co-designed in order to serve on committees and working groups representing the carer voice for the community.

Gaining knowledge is my one true calling, and as such I have undertaken many courses and workshops to develop and improve myself and my work.

When I am not working or learning, you can find me walking on the beach, developing my Tai Chi or spending valuable time with my beautiful family.
