Brief Biography: 

I am a Clinical Social Worker/Counsellor and Educator. Over the last 15 years, I have worked in the areas of women's and children's rights (with a particular focus on child abuse and neglect, and sexual and domestic violence) in Australia (specifically remote Aboriginal and migrant/refugee communities), the Asia Pacific region, South America and Africa.  

In recent years I have focused on child mental health and trauma informed practice. In particular I am interested in the impact of child sexual abuse on mental health and problem sexualized behaviours in children 12 years and under.  I am currently completing a Doctor of Social Work, my thesis is entitled "Social Workers Decision-Making Processes with Children who exhibit Problem Sexualized Behaviours".

In the future, I intend to continue my work on women's and children's rights issues.
