I am originally from Central Qld, a proud descendant of the Bidjara people from South East QLD on my mother's side and with South Sea origin on my father's side. I have lived in the Kimberley’s since 2009. Since completing year 12 at Kununurra District High, I have worked for various organisations until I joined KGT in 2021 as a receptionist/admin officer. I loved this role because I had a chance to interact with different customers, thereby understanding the needs of our key stakeholders.
I have now been offered the opportunity to step into the Field Officer role, which I look forward to. In this new exciting role, I'm responsible for recruiting and overseeing apprentices and trainees to ensure that their progress is monitored and documented correctly.

I am a descendant of the Kija, Gurindji and Malngin. I was born in Kununurra had the privilege of travelling around Australia until the age of seven. I lived in Queensland for a few years until I moved back to Kununurra in 2012.
I did a course in hospitality and got employed at KGT as a casual Kitchen Hand attendant, and was fortunate enough to get a full-time position as an Administration Support Officer. This enabled me to learn more business support skills and customer service. It was a case of being in the right place at the right time.
