Cathy is a single mum from a culturally and linguistically diverse background and has two adult children. Her oldest daughter has an intellectual disability. Through her daughter’s experiences, Cathy is passionate about working towards everyone having the same opportunity to learn, grow and be enriched through participating fully in our schools and community more broadly.
Cathy has taught herself and her daughter the importance of advocating and to be vocal and raise issues so we can then create the social change we desire. She envisions a society where everyone, regardless of background or level of ability feels welcomed, included and supported to live a meaningful and enriched life.
