I’m a country girl at heart, raised in Butler Tanks (SA). My passions are faith, justice, ecology and peace, with a side obsession with running. For over 25 years I’ve been teaching but my work life has also included counselling, chaplaincy and parish youthwork. Through this I’ve focused on Reconciliation programs and advocacy for refugees, students of colour, the LGBTQIA+ community and those who are neurodiverse. My husband and I are blessed with three school aged children and I’m excited to support the important mission of the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission.
