I have over 30 years of combined experience working in the finance and disability field.  Most recently working for a period of 13 years in the disability sector as a Human Resources Manager in a not for profit organisation that provides support and employment for people living with a disability.  This role encompassed quality assurance, management of federal funding, risk management, change management, workplace health and safety, recruitment and staff and employee development, amongst many other responsibilities.

I have a strong view that education is the right of every child.  Education should provide equal access for all students, aiding students to achieve their full potential and to participate in society to the best of their ability.

I have two grown children that have both been educated through the state and private education sector, where I undertook the inevitable roles of juggling being a soccer / basketball/ gymnastics / girl guide parent.  I now have a grand child who has just commenced their education journey at a state school.

I am positive that the skills that I have acquired and developed during my professional and personal life will assist TASSO in achieving their Mission in promoting and protecting the interests of parents and students in state schools.
