Biography

Over the past 15 years I have worked with over 130,000 children across the world, specialising in programs for children affected by trauma. My main focus is on early intervention and prevention, especially breaking destructive generational cycles. I moved to a tiny town called Kulin in regional WA just over 5 years ago to start a program called Camp Kulin. We teach kids essential life skills such as leadership, respect, trust, self confidence, self esteem, emotional regulation, anger management, communication and perseverance, but we do it in a way that is fun so they don't realise they are learning.

The program currently works with kids from right across WA, with some families travelling over 25 hours to bring their children, and we have a team of over 200 volunteers contributing their time. Our main saying is "one person may not be able to change the whole world, but they can change the world for one person."
