About

I am a lawyer, board director and mother of three young children.  I am committed to human rights and inclusion of people with disability, especially in relation to media and cultural representation as well as education.

Some of the things I have done in the last few years include:

I am proud of the work of Starting With Julius with Australian brands such as retail giants Kmart and Target, to help develop sustained approaches and policies to embed the representation of people with disability in their regular advertising efforts.  Click on the video below to find out more: https://vimeo.com/228747785

I also work to promote widespread recognition of the right to inclusive education as a fundamental human right of all children and the evidence-based benefits of students with disabilities being educated in regular classrooms together with their same-age peers.

I was honoured to speak about my work at the United Nations in Geneva in March 2016 and at the United Nations in New York  in October 2016.
