I started work in the Clinical Supervisor and Service Improvement role at the start of April and I have yet to step foot in a YFCC office or meet any staff in person.  After about 15 years working in Community Services that is certainly a first and as the lockdown in the North West tightens its grip it is unlikely to change any time soon.

I’m thrilled to be in a role which is all about practice – the heart and soul of the work that we do.  My background is as a counsellor specialising in trauma working with families, children and young people.

I’m really pleased to be working for a NW focused organization.  I’m new to Tasmania (I’ve been here three years and come from Perth, WA) and am really keen to contribute to my local community.  In my life outside of work I have two kelpies I adore who keep me super active rain, hail or coronavirus lock down.  I love the bush, the beach and the NW Tasmania landscape.  I have recently been studying and practicing mindfulness, I read avidly and am often listening to podcasts about everything from the latest in the neurobiology of trauma to my favourite comedians from around the world.
