SHINE for Kids

I am a proud Aboriginal woman from the Dunghutti Nation who was born and raised in the Kempsey NSW area. I come from a large family who have experienced the effects of Incarceration and understand the impacts it has on our children. I joined SHINE for Kids in 2010 as an Aboriginal Group Worker to facilitate the “Belonging to Family” Program at the Mid North Coast Correctional Centre. My passion is to support my people in making positive choices and to have a healthier lifestyle. This has lead me to further my education where I have gained qualifications in Management and the Community Sector.
