My goal is to improve the lives of families caring for people with disability. Through innovation and advocacy, my aspiration is to bring collaboration and effectiveness into disability care and supports.
I want to show that better teamwork in disability care can reduce the stress and workload on carers, and help people with disability to achieve their goals faster and with less resources required.
I’m the parent of three young children. My middle child is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and my youngest child has a rare disease called Ponto-cerebellar Hypoplasia. My own family’s experience has taught me that individuals have much more capacity than we imagine, and this has inspired me to dedicate my life to making social impact.
