Previously a forensic accountant, I moved to Australia from California in 2017 and switched careers to work in mental health. I'm very excited to join the CMHL team and support our growing lived experience workforce.
I have primarily worked in state-funded Community Mental Health Services and NDIS-funded services across different paid and volunteer roles, including peer support, learning and development, research, and team leader roles.
I'm passionate about promoting socio-economic and health equity, and I use my lived experience and intersecting identities to inform my work. Of particular interest to me is the intersection of culture, race, gender, and mental health.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time in nature, sports, and live music, as well as eating, dancing, and laughing with my loved ones.
