About me

I started working at P2P in February 2000 as admin assistant, and became CEO in 2010. I’m married with 2 adult daughters.

I have been strongly and positively influenced by some of the training I have been
privileged to attend and the people I have met in my 19 years.
○ Person Centred Thinking training / PATH Training
○ John O’Brien, Connie Lyle O’Brien, Jack Pearpoint, Lynda Kahn being the four
highlights

My Super Powers

Liking of taking a problem and looking for ways to solve them
● Tenacity and determination
● Empathy to others
● Ability to maintain a calm and positive demeanour when things are being difficult, even if I
need to walk away for a while to top up that calmness!

What I do at P2P

Raise awareness in the community about P2P and the work that it does. Actively seek opportunities to advance P2P so that people with a disability can benefit. Provide guidance to staff about the direction set by the Board of Management. Represent P2P on advisory councils and groups, e.g NDIS Qld Transition Advisory Group

Something I’d like to change about the NDIS/Disability Industry/Community

The continued ‘lucky dip’ of funding that the NDIS should have addressed but doesn’t
appear to have. The need for rules and regulations to take second place to the needs of the person with a disability and their family. The uncertainty that persists and makes it extremely difficult for organisations to have certainty about their future and their ability to make a difference.

I love working at P2P because…

I have the opportunity to influence the sector and the way the community values people with a
disability.

When I’m not at work I love…

Ballroom dancing
