“Growing up in a small town in regional Victoria and witnessing place-based disadvantage, particularly through adverse mental health outcomes, helped shape my desire to contribute to alleviating disadvantage. At SVA, I have the opportunity to contribute to this on a wide scale by working with a range of like-minded individuals and passionate external organisations.”
