Biography

Originally from Woorabinda, Queensland, I’ve been living on Ngunnawal Country for nearly 30 years. I am currently working with the ACT Government, Housing ACT as a Senior Indigenous Policy Liaison Officer.

This is, proudly, my third term on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body and very honoured to be representing our Community to the ACT Government and their Directorates.

I would like to thank the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community for their support and confidence in me to represent their interests to Government. There are a lot of things that need to change and it’s been a hard slog trying to change peoples attitude towards letting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people manage their own affairs.
