More About Me

About Me

I became a member of MINT after attending a wonderful TNT in Melbourne in August 2015. I have specialised in behaviour support for people with intellectual disabilities, commencing this type of work in 1999. Training has been a major part of my work, building capacity in transdisiplinary teams in regards to person-centred communication and behaviour support.

I continue to work with New South Wales Family and Community Service (FACS) as a Behaviour Support Specialist, and also operate a private training company, Ability Consultants. I am an Affiliate of the Centre for Disability Studies, Sydney University, and have assisted in the roll-out and design of their Person-Centred Active Support curriculum.
