Board of Management
Our dedicated board of management is made up of people in our local community. They guide our direction, make sure we meet our legal and regulatory requirements and have assisted us to grow into a leading Gippsl and disability support provider.
I am married to Pauline and we have 2 daughters. My youngest daughter has Autism with an intellectual disability.
I have worked in the power industry in the Latrobe Valley for over 38 years in many aspects of the business and I am currently Shift Operations Manager at Loy Yang Mine working for AGL.
I have been with Interchange Gippsland for many years as a client and serving on the Board in the past as President, Vice President and continue as a Committee member.
I live with my husband and two children and have been a solicitor for over 20 years, working in environmental and planning law.
I joined the Board of Interchange in mid-2010. Being on the Interchange board has been a privilege and I enjoy working to make sure we continue to deliver an expanding range of high quality, innovative, community inclusive services for the Gippsland community.
Working locally, I have been on the Interchange Gippsland Board since 2010, and currently hold the role as Treasurer. I am proud of all that Interchange Gippsland has achieved, and the extremely rewarding work we do. I believe we are an exceptional organisation and am committed to continue to provide quality services to the Gippsland community. I have worked as an accountant (CPA) for over 30 years for various organisations (currently in the power industry).
My husband, Terry and I live in Traralgon. I am a senior Case Manager with Anglicare Victoria, in Morwell. I work with the Integrated Family Services Team, assisting families with parenting. I have an Associate Diploma in Arts (Welfare Studies) through Monash Gippsland.
I joined the Interchange host program in 2002 and hosted for over 2 years. I joined the Board in 2004 and took on the role of Secretary, prior to becoming President 2010.
I am married with two adult daughters, and have lived all my life in the Latrobe Valley. I currently work in a business development and compliance role with a local Operations and Maintenance company providing services to industry.
I have many years experience in the energy, power and bulk materials handling industries, working in a range of management and human resources roles. I have been involved with Interchange since 1995 initially through my youngest daughter who has a mild intellectual disability.
I have recently moved to East Gippsland for a lifestyle change and am enjoying living on acreage and away from the traffic of Melbourne. I joined Interchange Gippsland so that I could get to know my new community and share some of my skills with a deserving organisation. My sister worked in Disability Services for 20 years and always showed her passion for helping others, and gained so much from her work.
I have 20 years experience in the IT industry in a variety of industries such as telecommunications, banking and finance, consulting and energy. I enjoy solving problems through technology and using it to connect people. I am currently working for a global software company.
