Anna fills her days working between Balancing Act3 and direct social work practice, a little bit of furniture building and a lot of cheese. With an undergraduate degree in Social Work and a Masters in Human Rights Law, Anna keeps her feet firmly on the ground in practice whilst also working at a high level advocating and influencing social policy.
Anna is passionate about ensuring that policy makers are connected with realities at a ground level. Anna has spent the last two and a half years working across all NDIS trial sites supporting service providers, families and stakeholders to prepare for their transition to the NDIS.
During this time Anna has worked in partnership with the NDIA around the system design in the early childhood sector specifically. Anna believes a hands-on-approach is the key to lasting systemic change, she believes real change occurs when stakeholders, Government and service providers invest in relationship building at a local level. Today her knowledge, dedication and experiences are the driving force behind her energy and enthusiasm.
Anna’s deep love of people, their communities and their stories have made her a highly sought after public speaker, advocate and consultant.
