A bit about me...
I've been designing clothes for years as incentives for the Aboriginal Community to participate in our health programs even back when I was Preventative Health Manager at VAHS. Usually, it was an Aboriginal designed training singlet that celebrated cultural identity and created a sense of team amongst the participants.
I took a leap of faith to start a health business with co-founder Sarah called Spark Health. It’s been shared mindsets, goals, work ethics and values that has enabled our partnership, business and impact to flourish. We never imagined that it would end up looking like this. With us managing an Aboriginal street wear label as well, that supports and funds the impact and work we do together with Aboriginal Communities.
A TYPICAL DAY FOR ME...
Grabbing a real coffee or two! Get prepped for an interview or yarn to share about our work and campaigns. I spend a lot of time working and advocating to #FreeTheFlag.
I'm also always thinking about what messages, causes and designs we put on our next range of tees to elevate the voices of Aboriginal people and share the stories of our mob.
I work with suppliers to make our our visions a reality and create the products that spark important conversations. Despite, my day revolving mostly around fashion and cause I'm still a public health person at heart and love our virtual run series that motivates people to move more.
