As one of the Directors of roundsquared I bring over 30 years of experience in the disability sector as well as having two daughters who have NDIS plans.
My experience started with my first job after leaving school in the UK when I worked in a large institution on a locked ward for young men with significant autism. I was very lucky to work under a Charge Nurse who was visionary and could see opportunities for these young men outside of the locked doors! This set me on my path. Since then I’ve worked as a house manager of group homes, supported people to access open employment and have established social enterprises with people with disability. I have also been CEO of what used to be called a Division of General Practice.
In between that with my husband we ran a goat dairy and made a renowned brand of camembert style cheese that sold up & down the coast. We moved to Moruya around seven years ago in order to access more opportunities for our girls and now love it here. I am a passionate gardener, a day out at a garden centre is my idea of excitement! I also love cooking & preserving all our produce & as a family we’d love to be able to ski & travel more, a trip to Morocco a couple of years ago was a big highlight for all of us.
