I am a passionate and active disability advocate. As a manual wheelchair user, I am eager to make positive change to physical access to public places and travel. I’m a certified Youth Worker, specialising in youth and disability engagement with an emphasis on empowerment. I'm the original founder of the Julia Farr Youth Committee within Purple Orange. I chaired the committee from 2008 until 2015 as well as playing a part in the implementation of the Julia Farr Youth Mentoring Program and Peer Support Network, where I still have an active role. I have extensive board and governance experience, including: Purple Orange Board of Directors and Housing Board, Ministerial Advisory Committee: Students with Disabilities (SA), Physical Disability Australia and Home Modifications Australia.
