Skills Development & Community Engagement Unit Manager

I joined Marymead in 2016 when Marymead merged with Autism Asperger ACT. My initial role was NDIS Support Coordinator in the Marymead Autism Centre, and in 2017 I was promoted to Team Leader of the Autism Centre and expanded Autism Centre services including the successful Dungeons & Dragons social group.   

Prior to working at Marymead, I worked in the private sector for 14 years in digital project management before changing my career path to more closely align with my values. This experience was advantageous at Marymead when I was promoted to the role of Project Manager for the development phase of the MindMap – ACT Youth Portal in 2021. 

Since then, I have been acting in the role of Unit Manager for the Skills Development & Community Engagement Unit which oversees the various services in the Autism Centre as well as mulch, Kids' Companions and Boundless Buddies.    

My qualifications include a Bachelor of Applied Psychology and a Graduate Diploma in Professional Development Education, both from the University of Canberra.
