Kathleen brings with her extensive experience in the not for profit sector. In her earlier years, she flung herself into aid and development work in South Africa and Cambodia. There she focused on mentoring vulnerable young people toward positive life choices as well as investing her interests in anti-human trafficking work.
Kathleen’s career has progressed her skillset in a variety of areas including Executive Administration, Project Management, Relief & Development Portfolio Management and Operations. These experiences over the last decade have afforded her the ability to work and communicate effectively across many cultures and circumstances. Particularly with people groups who are oppressed and disenfranchised, where trust and faith are critical.
Apart from being an unapologetic coffee-snob, outside of work, Kathleen enjoys the simple life; adventure walks around Melbourne, the beach, brunch with friends – always with her Maltese Shih Tzu, Gilbert, in tow.
Kathleen holds qualifications in Project Management and Business and is currently completing an Associate Degree in Justice/Criminology.
