I’m from Melbourne and have spent the last fifteen years using business ideas to improve public sector and non-profit organisations. I’ve worked in capital cities and regional towns, in Australia as well as overseas, and I’m excited to support the NDIS and put those ideas into practice serving people with disability.
I began working for people with disability twenty years ago and have been passionate about supporting clients to live a better life ever since. I’ve worked in a range of roles and service providers, so I know what works and what doesn’t, and what matters in making a difference to people’s lives every day.
Annie has rich experience in the disability sector, with roles at Mind Australia, Villa Maria Catholic Homes and most recently Yooralla, where she was a leading expert on the transition to the NDIS. She cares passionately about improving the lives of people with disability.
