I am a Gunai/ Monaro Ngarigo woman, mother and grandmother whose family lives and works in Gippsland. My life is strong in culture and family, these are the cornerstone to who I am. I have grown up knowing language and cultural knowledge from both my mother and father country. I speak language from both Gunai and Monaro Ngarigo and I have been teaching language in context in our community program to children and adults for 8 years.

I have been an active committee member to the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages for the past 4 years and the Victorian State Representative in an executive position on FATSIL for 4 years. I look forward to continuing the work of reviving our languages.
