I have worked as the Program Coordinator for Refugee and Migrant Settlement Service at Anglicare NT – Darwin over the past eight years. I come from a social welfare background have worked in community sector organisations for 30 years. I have previously worked in youth housing and homelessness in Melbourne, including a program supporting Vietnamese youth from Refugee background in early 1990. I thoroughly enjoy working cross culturally, meeting amazing and resistant people from different cultures. My initial contact with refugees in 1988 whilst volunteering at a medical street clinic in Calcutta supporting West Bengali Refugees continues to inspire me to work in this field.
