Why I joined:
I have always had a passion for community, which was a major driver for me settling in the Northern Rivers. And, when putting down roots in the region, I knew that I wanted to get involved and give back to this wonderful community.
NRCF is an incredible organisation that has been making a huge impact across the Northern Rivers. During the floods they were setting an example on how to support a community through a crisis, just as they did during the fires. I look forward to contributing to its ongoing success.
What I do: Treasurer, Chair of the Finance and Audit Committee and Member of the the Governance Committee.
