I have 60 + years of living experience having a physical disability

I love hearing people’s stories. I’ve worked as an empowerment advocate for over 30 years, working with people from all sectors of the community & their families in my hometown Melbourne, Australia.

Ready for action

I worked with Australia’s major telecommunications provider in the area of accessibility to create communications solutions for seniors & people with disabilities.

Over many years, I have shared my views about the disability world both from a living experience perspective & as a professional advocate.
