I am the Project Lead for the Child Information Sharing Scheme (CISS), a Victorian legislation that centers child safety and well-being in all our work, giving children the best chance to live safe and happy lives. I believe community and family-driven work promotes diverse environments for children to flourish. This project provides opportunities for cross-sector collaboration and to work directly with AMHS to support them in increasing the mental health workforce's knowledge of and confidence in using CISS.
I am proud to have started my mental health career as an Enrolled Nurse, working with adults on inpatient units and in the community. I joined CMHL in 2020 as one of the first Mental Health Enrolled Nurse Educators and helped develop specific EN training and build strong EN networks for the state. I’m passionate about improving the system, eliminating restrictive practices, and contributing to spaces that promote healing.
When not working I’m outside with my very active dog or watching sports. Before nursing, I played roller derby for Team USA.
