Tanya Keed

Deputy Chairperson

Tanya Keed is an Aboriginal woman from Dunghatti Country, NSW, who has called Canberra home for more than 20 years. She does critical work in health and trauma management for women engaged with the ACT criminal justice system.

Tanya is your member for the Community Services Directorate. It’s a role she delivers with well-rounded experience and knowledge as a long-term allied health professional and leader across government, the private sector and not-for-profit organisations.

She’s a strong advocate on issues around Aboriginal incarceration, family violence and crime. Her work with corrective services has gone from the Alexander Machonochie Centre and Victim Service ACT to setting up and directing her own consultancy, Clybucca Dreaming, in 2018.

What began as a way to provide Aboriginal-led allied health and trauma management and support services now extends to training and mentoring for communities in the ACT and surrounding region.

Bolstering her extensive work experience are a Bachelor of Social Work and post-graduate qualifications in Indigenous trauma recovery. Tanya’s now working towards a Master of Philosophy.
