I’m a qualified teacher, working with students with a variety of disabilities across many school settings in South Australia. In 2018, I was involved in a work place accident and have been living with a traumatic brain injury for the last 4 years. I am now a concussion/tbi advocate, mentor, writer and speaker, dedicating my time to offering support and education to both the brain injury community and wider non disabled community. I am a rehab mentor and board trainee for Brain Injury SA, volunteer with YMCA, and am also involved in the co-design process for the Road to Employment Project at Purple Orange. I have created my personal blog and organisation called The Orange Butterfly. Through my writing, community events and online social media platform, I am committed to closing the often-misunderstood gap between the brain injury and wider community. Ballet and Irish Dancing have also been an integral part of my life where I have competed nationally for over 20 years.
