AboutI have dedicated my life to assisting Traditional Owner Groups reach their aspirations and goals of self-management, self-determination and building strong governance structures. I have advocated for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People in forums, meetings and representative bodies. My first major role came when I was appointed as the first Indigenous Board Secretariat for Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. I served with the Park Board of Management for a 5 year term. I returned to my Lama Lama People in Cape York Queensland and worked tirelessly for my people in my role as Traditional Use of Marine Resources Agreement (TUMRA) Coordinator. I helped my people to manage our Sea Country and the various activities for looking after country. In my current role at AIMS, I will help Traditional Owners connect with our organisation to access better science and research which will lead to opportunities to merge Traditional Knowledge and Western Science.
