When my partner and I were considering moving to Kyogle, a little over four years ago, we discovered the gym was community run, the cinema was (at that time) community run, and there was a small farmer’s market. These are things that appealed to us.
I’ve worked in community development and adult education for a very long time. I believe that communities have a right to influence the future of their community and that how people learn is very often as important as what they learn. I am a mediator, a facilitator and a writer and spend time contributing to the community in a variety of ways, including Kyogle Together.
AS long as I can remember I have had a keen interest in a sense of community, Community development and caring for the most vulnerable members of our society. I attended UQ to become a Social Worker and have actively worked in Health/Welfare sector for many years now.
I moved to Kyogle over 13 years ago, attracted by the nearby National Parks and the cute village feel of the town centre. In my time of living in Kyogle, I have witnessed a town that works together to get things done. I believe there is nothing that the people of Kyogle aren’t able to achieve. Being inspired by this, I became a member of the Kyogle Together Board over 5 years ago and have proudly seen this organisation grow and assist many different groups within the community.
I am extremely proud to be a part of Kyogle Together and the services and programs which it umbrellas and I would like to thank all those who have volunteered or supported to maintain and grow these services and programs.
