I am a proud Murri from the Kamilaroi Nation (North-West NSW), and I grew up in Western Sydney and now live in Canberra. My career and university qualifications have been focused around Aboriginal people and water.
I am always keen to make an impact where or whatever I put my energy into, my TSR Hub role – Indigenous Liaison Officer (ILO) is no different as threatened species may well be water dependent and culturally significant. I always find myself in a unique position of being trained in western science with a cultural background. This role with the TSR Hub is a good opportunity to link Western Science with Traditional Knowledge, for better management of those threatened species.
I work Monday and Tuesday
