School Ready Children Starts With Us! 

We help rural/regional communities prepare children for early learning success through early identification of developmental delays, fast referrals, family support and data collection to inform sustainable community change for healthier, happier, school-ready children.

We are on a mission to partner with all Primary Schools in the Nambucca Valley in 2024

Improve School Success

The Nambucca  Valley has one of the highest rates of children starting school with developmental delays in 2 or more key milestones. This directly impacts early learning success. We believe we can change this with our Empowering Futures Program, and we want all schools to have access to this innovative program.

RN, RM, MMid, Post Grad Cert Child and Family Health Nursing, Immunisation.

With over 15 years of health expertise in various areas including Nursing, Midwifery, and Child and Family Health Nursing, coupled with a rich background in serving remote areas of Australia, my primary focus is on assessing childhood health and developmental milestones.


I am dedicated to identifying children who may be off track or at risk of falling behind, particularly in communities facing service accessibility challenges.

My passion is centred around fostering family partnership connections and recognising their significance in nurturing the health and well-being of our most vulnerable members.


Having called the Nambucca Valley home, I am deeply committed to collaborating with families, healthcare providers, educators, and the broader community.


Together, we can build community capacity and effect sustainable change, ultimately reducing childhood developmental vulnerability. Let's work hand in hand to make a positive impact on the lives of our youngest community members.

Bachelor of Primary Education

With 15 years of experience as a Primary School Educator and strong ties to the Nambucca Valley, my commitment centres on improving childhood learning outcomes and tackling developmental delays in education within this community.

Emphasising the importance of family partnerships and connections, I am enthusiastic about charting unique educational paths to inspire young minds.


I am dedicated to cultivating a growth mindset and solution-based thinking as key elements in overcoming challenges in childhood development.

The Nambucca Valley is not just where I live; it's a space where we can collaboratively work towards a brighter future for our children.

Let's come together to enhance learning experiences, address developmental delays, and create an environment where our youngest members can thrive.
