Family by Family

We want to see all families thrive not just survive

I have always lived and loved living in Western Sydney, growing up here with my family and going onto to settle here later in life.

I have a background in Management as well as Training and Development, most recently I worked in Juvenile Justice in Western Sydney.  I was inspired by spending time with the Young People I worked alongside. They gave me a new worldview and helped me to see other aspects to life from their stories.

When I saw an Opportunity to stop other young people coming into contact with the Juvenile Justice system by equipping families with new skills and providing new opportunities to families I jumped at the chance.

As an All Rounder with the Family by Family team, no two days are ever the same. It is exciting to come into work every day and have the freedom to be creative in our approach with families.

In my spare time I enjoy catching up with friends, playing poker and making spontaneous decisions like recently when we took a road trip to Gosford.
