Community Researcher

I am a Bardi Bunyiol descendant and well known member of the local Broome and West Kimberley communities. I bring my experience in Aboriginal community engagement and relationship building to the Telethon Kids Institute, having worked extensively with a diverse group of Aboriginal communities and organisations throughout WA.

I previously worked as a Medicare Liaison Officer working closely with the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services in WA and in particular the Kimberley regions, providing assistance on how Aboriginal people access to allied health service providers could be improved.

In 1996 I was also recognised by the Broome Rotarians for my community work and was awarded the Paul Harris Fellow award for my work in running basketball for many years for the Broome and wider communities, further facilitating opportunities for Broome based health organisations to actively promote a range of community health campaigns such as sexual health and the effects of substance abuse.
