Personal profile


I began my professional career as a psychologist in 1973 with the Department of Child Protection. Following a hiatus while my 2 children were little and with travelling I returned to the workforce in 1983 as a graduate welafre officer in Geraldton in child protection.  I returned to Perth completed my Bachelor of Social Work and worked at then Princess Margaret Hospital and at the Social Work Department at King Edward Memorial Hospital.  I retired in 2012 and in 2013 I undertook a PhD which I completed in 2019. I now work on a pro bono basis and was  founding member of a network of advocates and community legal centres to promote representation for parents whose children are subject  to statutory intervention.  The key themes that I bring to the conduct as a social worker is that it is fundamentally a human activity, that relationships matter and that we need to foreground and refelct on decision making, perception, reasoning and judgement in all our interactions.
