Education and Service Development Consultant
Hi, I’m Ine. I joined VTMH as an Education & Service Development Consultant in March 2023. I bring lived experience and professional expertise in early childhood, adult, and transcultural mental health to my role, and I can’t wait to get involved.
I have a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy from the University of the Sunshine Coast and a Graduate Diploma in Education (Early Childhood) from RMIT. I am in the process of completing a Master of Education (Equity, Diversity and Social Change) with the University of Melbourne.
I’ve been fortunate to work in a variety of settings, including non-for-profit, government and private, and in areas of relevance to mental health. These include early childhood early intervention, workplace rehabilitation, forensic, clinical and community mental health.
I am passionate about developing, implementing, and evaluating mental health programs with an intersectionality approach, such as a weekend group therapy program at Thomas Embling Hospital, and a young adult group therapy and dog therapy program at Ramsay Clinic Albert Road, Ramsay Healthcare.
I’m looking forward to collaboratively working with the VTMH team to strengthen existing projects. Long term, I’m looking forward to also collaboratively working with the team to develop and implement innovative projects that further address and improve inequalities and intersectionality health gaps that people with diversity experience.
My travel goal is to visit every continent, and it’s going well. I have been fortunate to have travelled to over 20 countries and have visited every continent except South America and Antarctica!
