Highly Experienced Lawyer
Prior to commencing to practise as a Native Title Lawyer some 20 or more years ago, I was a commercial and property lawyer and worked extensively with small to medium sized businesses over some 20 or more years. My native title practice has developed over the past 20 years. As a result, I have now practiced exclusively as a native title lawyer over the past 15 years. During that time, I have developed an intimate knowledge of the native title, cultural heritage, CATSI Act and the Indigenous space more generally. As a result, I have developed a deep understanding of the challenges that face indigenous people in Australia both within their own communities and within the wider Australian community. Throughout that time, I have only ever worked for Indigenous claimant groups, native title holders and directors of both CATSI Act corporations and Corporations Act companies. Aside from my legal background, I bring an ability to effectively communicate with and develop lasting relationships with Indigenous People. The skills developed as a commercial/native title lawyer enable me to provide practical easily understood advice so as to enable indigenous people to understand the complex legislative and legal environment within which they must work. My own personal experience as a small business owner and operator also means that I have a deep personal understanding of the difficulty in surviving, growing and successfully operating a profitable business.

Soon to be semi retired CEO of 30 years standing

I am also the Director of a small business called Properway which aims to focus on 'proper' Governance, consultation and evaluation. I am a Director (treasurer) of the Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies NT (AADANT), the peak body for the sector in the NT as well as a Board member for the Australasian Therapeutic Communities Association (ATCA). My passion and expertise is in helping repair Organisations that find themselves in difficulty or are struggling with management and/or governance. I am a non Aboriginal woman although my husband is a Yorta Yorta man and my adopted son is from the Ganai in Gippsland and the Arrente people of Central Australia. This is only relevant as it has afforded me the benefit of understanding the Aboriginal world view and a knowledge of traditions and culture seldom experienced by non-Aboriginal Australians. I live in Alice Springs and am currently the CEO of DASA which was struggling a few years back and is now an organisation that is held in high esteem by all levels of Government. Naturally I don't take all the credit for this transformation as I have developed an excellent leadership group, all of whom participate in the decision making of the organisation. It is my intention to semi retire in the first half of 2019, but with full retirement out of the question, I still have a lot to offer, I love a challenge and am no where near ready to simply fade away.
