I support people and organisations to better understand how to tackle complex problems through the use of systems approaches. I enjoy building the capacity of others to think and act differently in the design, implementation, research and evaluation of initiatives at a community level. I have worked with a range of sectors from state government, local government, University and the not for profit sector.
If you or your organisation are interested in how a systems approach could add additional insights into your programs or evaluations don’t hesitate to get in touch!
I have experience providing awareness training, facilitating discussions, setting up support networks and engaging with people at all levels to challenge stereotypes and think more broadly about what inclusion might look like in your organisation.
