My strong support network has nurtured my values of inclusivity, human connections and the importance of looking after the volunteer.

I am an advocate for stronger, more vibrant communities. This is especially so within the coastal community in which I live. After all, who knows a communities wants and needs, more than the people who live within it?

My positive outlook on life has been strengthened by my desire for wanderlust; believing new destinations and cultures provide for the best learning opportunities.

I believe this education helps nurture empathy, that in turn, promotes good connections.

It is a privilege to be in this role, seeing first-hand the impact our team creates.

I enjoy learning from our volunteers, many of whom bring a wealth of knowledge with them from their day jobs. I love knowing our work allows for immediate impact.

The simplicity of seeing stories shared and the rosy red cheeks from our passengers and volunteers, whilst they are on the Trishaws, sure does feel good! This work is good medicine for all involved.
