This program is delivered in ‘Group workshops’
As a woman, advocate, educator and survivor of domestic violence, I speak whole-heartedly, honestly,
with compassion, respect and knowledge around the impact of violence.
I also like to take a holistic approach in ways to heal, deal and move through the fear. I believe moving
through the fear of all that is domestic violence is the only way. You can not go over or around it you
must move through it in order to heal and move forward.
I have had the privilege of sharing my story on a community, national and international level. In 2012, I
attended the United Nations Status of Women Forum in New York City where I told my story, I was
scared, I’d spoken about it many times but this time it was the WHOLE story. I cried (the ugly cry)
however I got through it, I did it, the relief after was astounding.
I know how important it is to be heard to be seen, and to be believed - that is why I believe that in
sharing my story I will give others, just like me, the inspiration and courage to share their stories and
stand together to say NO to violence in all its forms.
My workshops are based around the concept of 'letting go' and 'setting goals'. You don't have to be a
victim of violence to take part in my workshop series - I have developed them to be accessible to ALL
women regardless of circumstance.

Domestic violence can play havoc on the self-esteem of a victim in the work place as well as have a damaging affect on the workplace. Women who experience domestic violence at home are often harassed at work unbeknown to other staff. This can be a major concern for the victim and employees.
I can provide training around identifying the signs of ‘Domestic Violence’ for your organization, department
or business, providing tools and knowledge that will help address, educate, identify and work toward
In the past 15 years I have been involved in advocating and educating thousands of people around the
‘anti violence’ message, developing several training packages along the way for community, community
organizations and the NSW Government, more recently for the National Rugby League (NRL).
I have the experience both lived and learnt. Having been a survivor of domestic violence I have both the
personal and professional experience to develop, deliver and educate nationally and inter-nationally around
the topic of domestic violence.
I do this respectfully and professionally providing a holistic approach and working towards prevention
whilst understanding the impact and affect that domestic violence has on victims, survivors, families,
friends and communities.
I am one of the very few women in the state who travel around NSW educating men around the anti-violence message. Being an ambassador, curriculum writer trainer and facilitator for the award winning 'Tackling Violence' program, a program developed to use Rugby League as a vehicle to promote and advocate the anti - violence message for men. I am also the lead writer in the National Rugby League's anti-violence kit 'Voice against Violence'
I believe that we must engage men in the conversations in order to make any kind of impact in reducing
These conversations MUST be had. In order to protect victims, we need to go to the source meaning we
must first reach perpetrators of violence.
This includes not only holding them accountable, but helping them find a better way to live by providing a
safe space to speak openly and honestly, providing one on one mentoring and education around the
impact and affect of violence.
Anti - Violence in Schools:
I have developed and presented school based education around the anti-violence message to hundreds of
school children through the Tackling Violence programme.
I am available for school discussion and or training for students, teachers and staff.
