I have worked as a peer support worker in the mental health sector for the past 6 years supporting others with experiences of trauma, mental distress, homelessness and alcohol and other drug issues. Drawing from my lived experience, the focus of my work has been to walk with people as they forge their own path connecting with what is meaningful to them. I am passionate about supporting the development of the lived experience workforce with a particular interest in co-design and collaborative projects to further develop peer work practice.

I am trained in Intentional Peer Support, Hearing Voices Approach, Alternatives to Suicide, Power, Threat, Meaning Framework, Emotional CPR and hold a Bachelor of Social Science (Welfare).
