Check back soon, we will be adding board member photos shortly!
I'm studying a Bachelor of Social Work at Flinders University. Being a JFA Purple Orange Board and Committee member offers me the chance to connect with people who share similar values to discuss issues that matter in my life with disability. One example of this is Inclusive Education. An opportunity to work together, towards making a positive difference in the lives of others is something that means a great deal to me. In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music, going to the movies, ten pin bowling and swimming.

I acquired a disability at the age of eight but I didn’t regard it as a disability; handicapped somewhat, disabled no, until, in my early fifties, I ended up in a wheelchair. I then found that my biggest disability was the lack of acceptance by others of my abilities. Over the past 25 years I have worked in management and governance roles for twelve disability organisations at state, national and international level. I have a belief that all people with a disability be given the resources and opportunities to explore the realms of their abilities and live a fruitful life in the community. I previously enjoyed playing lawn bowls and sailing but nowadays I relax by reading, mostly non-fiction.
I was born in Papua New Guinea and from an early age saw that some people have access to life opportunities that others don’t. I saw this also in the lives of many people I have come to know who live with a disability. I am deeply interested in how we help our community grow to be genuinely inclusive of everyone and see that Julia Farr has an extremely important role to play in helping achieve this.
