Alert Program® Study Coordinator
Prior to commencing as a senior research officer at Telethon, Bree lived and worked in the remote Kimberley community of Fitzroy Crossing. She held the roles of teacher, primary school deputy principal and student services coordinator at the local district high school before furthering her passion for working in partnership with the local community by leading the operational establishment of the Baya Gawiy Children and Family Centre. In this role, Bree built her capacity to work with a range of stakeholders to develop programs and lead initiatives to close the gap of disadvantage between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal children in education and health. By joining the team at Telethon Kids Institute as the Alert Program® Study Coordinator in the Alcohol, Pregnancy & Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Research Group, Bree will continue working closely with the Fitzroy Valley community to coordinate a study which will evaluate the effectiveness of the Alert Program® at improving primary school aged children’s self-regulation and executive functioning skills. Bree is currently working towards a Masters in Child Health Research.
