Personal profile

Personal profile

I have been a member of the School of Nursing, Paramedicine and Healthcare Sciences (SNPHS) since January 2023, initially as Acting Course Director of Paramedicine, and now as Senior Lecturer in Healthcare Sciences and Head of Discipline, First Nations Health. I teach into the Bachelor of Health Science (Mental Health), with a focus on community development, mental health law, and research in mental health, and into the Master of Health Management, with a focus on health law and advocacy. 

Before joining SNPHS, I was Senior Lecturer in Interdisciplinary Health and Course Director in CSU's School of Allied Health, Exercise and Sports Science (previously School of Community Health), where I taught primarily health social sciences and community health. 

My life and work is founded on principles of social justice, human rights, respect, honesty, and empowerment, exemplifying my commitment to knowing how to live well in a world worth living in - yindyamarra winhanganha.
