I have worked in the public health sector for approximately 15 years, with roles ranging from Senior Social Worker at Alfred Health, Discipline Senior of Social Work in the Monash Mental Health Program, and a number of years as the Manager of the Southern Dual Diagnosis Service.
I have post graduate qualifications in AOD (alcohol and other drugs), mental health, counselling and a Masters of Public Health. I am also a casual trainer at Swinburne TAFE.
At CMHL I connect with existing groups and services to ensure that their ongoing training needs are met, and contribute to the implementation of the CMHL training calendar.
I am an advocate for ongoing workforce development to ensure that we in the mental health sector feel confident to address the changing needs of our community and provide the best care we can.
