Creator of Innovation

My role

Based on the Sunshine Coast, I am responsible for the creation and development of all new social enterprises across the organisation.

Professional background

I am a bestselling author with  over 30 years’ experience in both the community and private sectors working with some of Australia’s most vulnerable and alienated people.  My life works’ passion has been to create the opportunities for people regardless of their education, background abilities or experience to be their best version of themselves and reach their true potential which is what attracted me to IDDS

Fun quirky fact

I sailed a 27ft yacht across the Atlantic ocean and spent 6 months as an ‘Inter-Island trader’ in the Caribbean during which time I had dinner one night with Mick Jagger and his entourage on an Island called Petite St Vincent (Mick’s shout!)
