After a couple of very challenging years, I was awarded my Master of Management – Leadership Navigation Norwegian School of Executive Management BI. My research topic was ‘Sustainable Social Enterprise and Corporate Social Responsibility’.

I was appointed to the Australian Council for Children and Parenting, working with experts on a national research project for early intervention in mental health issues experienced by children and young people.

As President of the National industry peak body, Family Services Australia, it was a proud moment when we secured the Australian Government’s $400 million investment to expand services for families and separating parents with the focus on promoting the best interests of children.
