I have lived in the Ballarat region for almost 13 years, after relocating from Perth. I am the General Manager Corporate Services for Centacare, a not-for-profit, community-based organisation that services western Victoria. I am also a mother to three young children.
Since 1977, Centacare has worked to provide social welfare services which empower people to live with choice and opportunity, Predominantly funded by the state and federal governments, Centacare offers services in the area of family relationships including counselling, parenting and mediation, homelessness, mental health, employment, victims of crime, youth and justice, and advocacy.
I believe I bring a sound business mind and experience to Committee for Ballarat, particularly in the areas of finance and governance. I also have a knowledge of the corporate and not-for-profit business environment in Ballarat.
