About Me

My career focus is to contribute to the improvement of health and educational outcomes for the Australian population including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Cultural and Linguistically Diverse peoples.

I have extensive practical and applied research experience in a broad range of environments including urban, rural, tropical and remote Indigenous communities and with health care providers in the NT, WA, QLD and NSW. My research has been applied and focused on capacity building and changing practice and policy in: Mental Health; Chronic Disease Management; Health promotion and public health practice in Primary Health care providers; Pandemic Influenza; Hendra virus risks with Equine Vets; and Strongyloidiasis in Indigenous communities.

Much of my health and education sector experience was in the Northern Territory in tropical urban, rural and remote settings and has broadened to research with Aboriginal Medical Services and communities in NT, QLD, WA and northern NSW. From 1992-2007 I worked in Health Promotion; policy development; Research, Evaluation and Training; Management of Health Promotion and Public Health Services; and as an applied researcher.

I have extensive skills in leadership and management of multidisciplinary teams. I have authored sections of applied manuals for primary health care practitioners and have extensive experience in workforce development. My work from 1980-1991 was in the Education Sector as a teacher in Primary and Secondary Schools, a Faculty Senior in Health and Physical Education, and an Education officer in Health and Drug Education in the Curriculum Branch of NT Department of Education. This position worked with teachers in schools on Curriculum development, workforce development and training.

I am acknowledged nationally and internationally for my leadership in Health Promotion and Indigenous health. This is evidenced by my leadership in the Australian Health Promotion Association and from working in partnership with Indigenous practitioners in the International Network of Indigenous Health Promotion Professionals (INIHPP). I have contributed to the co-ordination of Indigenous workshops at the Annual Australian Health Promotion conferences since 2008; the Population Health Congresses (2008, and 2012), and the International Union of Health Promotion and Education Conferences since 1997.

My role from 2007 -2015 was to facilitate ground-breaking approaches to Higher Degree Research doctoral preparation and completions, applying approaches and lessons that contributed to and supported the Cohort doctoral studies program in the Division of Tropical Medicine and Health at James Cook University. I facilitate capacity building processes through mentoring and supporting researchers and HDR students. I currently supervise ten HDR students who are working in various health settings including Nepal, Malaysia and rural communities in Australia.

My current role as Professor of Health Promotion is a collaboration between CQUniversity, Wide Bay Health Services and Bundaberg Health Promotions Pty Ltd as a research Professor in Health Promotion. The aim is to build health promotion strategies and research capacity across these and other community organisations.
