Lynne has a background in Occupational Therapy, and has enjoyed a rewarding 35 year career filled with a variety of experiences and learning opportunities. She has worked in hospitals, rehabilitation services, community health, mental health and in the disability sector in both frontline and management roles. She really enjoys the cross fertilisation of knowledge and ideas that this variety has offered. Lynne’s clinical background as a therapist and broad experience in a variety of settings has helped her develop excellent critical thinking and reasoning skills, which is a great asset in her management role, particularly where a focus on supporting the needs of people and teams with complex and varied needs is required. Lynne works from a rights-based approach and is passionate about ensuring the voice of the person with a disability is heard and considered in all aspects of planning and service delivery, always advocating for inclusion and equity of opportunity. She is passionate about working with people and values opportunities to work in teams to develop new ideas and approaches to supporting people with disability. Lynne is dedicated to the principle of “do good in the world” and outside of work has been an active volunteer in the local community she loves. In 2018 Lynne was tremendously honoured to receive an OAM for services to the community.
