Being raised in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, the Hope Street mission to empower young people in the Western and Northern Suburbs to overcome disadvantage really resonates with me. Being able to contribute to the organisation through membership on the Board (as Treasurer) and Finance Committee (as Chair) is a privilege.
I have a passion for public health and prevention, and have worked across community and youth, hospital, academia, local and state governments.
