I have recently be elected Treasurer of the Committee which I am looking forward to.  Having recently arrived from New Zealand, I was previously a Volunteer for St John Ambulance in various rolls over fifty two years.  Prior to my retirement I was self employed as an Accounting Technician completing taxation returns for the NZ Government.

Committee Member

My introduction to APRDA was in 2011 with vocational placement while studying Community Services at Ashmore Tafe. I held the position of Committee President between 2013  and 2018 and with all its challenges it was a wonderful journey that has been shared and supported by many people. Since stepping down as committee president, due to accepting the role of Center Manager, I have taken on a role as a general committee member.
