I began working in public health as a Carer at a regional hospital in NSW while completing undergraduate studies in Law and Arts at ANU. After graduating, I continued to work with NSW Health in People & Culture before accepting a graduate position with the Federal Department of Health and Ageing.
In 2015 I returned to Melbourne to undertake a Master of Education, Inclusive Learning and Special Education at Monash University. I saw my studies as a continuation of my Grandmother’s work as a teacher of child survivors of war and long-term guide at the Melbourne Jewish Holocaust Museum. From my Grandmother, I learnt the importance of storytelling in a safe environment to facilitate the process of healing from trauma.
I joined the CMHL team in 2021, and am currently completing a Graduate Diploma in Legal Studies at Melbourne University, specialising in Mental Health and Disability Law and Natural Resource Management Law.
Outside of work I am a musician, a writer and I research and volunteer in the field of decolonisation and genocide prevention.
