Team Meeting

Policy Development




I'm ready to provide context from three decades of lived experience with trauma and adversity to Gov and Orgs that want to strengthen their policies by including a survivor's voice, uphold best practice and reduce harm to their community. 

  • Are you a passionate politician or organisation who lives and breathes women and children's safety and wellbeing?

  • Are you tirelessly lobbying for change without including lived expertise or an Advocate you retain on-call? 

  • Can you afford to miss a gap in your service or policy that could harm women and children or face public ridicule from not having a survivors perspective?


I understand the sleepless nights you've had, wanting this reform to make a real and lasting difference for the community, and the need to get it right. I'm passionate, accessible and purpose-driven to ensure all women and children are safe from harm across Australia.


  • Attorney General, Mark Speakman & Dept. of Community and Justice (DCJ) - NSW DFV Forum with Domestic Violence NSW

  • Ministry of Health (NSW): Government Relations on sexual assault early-evidence collection policy

  • Insight Exchange: Review of state-wide resources for survivors of domestic, family and sexual violence

  • Domestic Violence NSW: Contributing to policy/legislation reform submissions

  • Women’s Safety NSW: Contributing to policy/legislation reform submissions

  • Good Shepherd: Co-design project for a National Financial Independence Hub (pilot approved)


If you're ready to change the world, create social impact and make the community safer and more equitable, I'm pumped and can't wait to work with you!
