About Jacqueline

I am the mother of 2 adult children and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren, 4 cats and 2 dogs.  I love escaping to nature when I can with my husband, spending as much time as I can with family, enjoying a local red wine with a meal and watching movies.  I enjoy reading, crashing in front of Netflix, listening to an eclectic range of music and meditation.

My work history includes working with intellectually disabled adults before spending 16 years in management at a large retail company head office.  Psychology has always been my passion, so I returned to study while working full time as a mature age student. 

After completing my degrees and placements with the Access Team, Primary Mental Health Partners (adults) and the Department of Education (children), I worked in public mental health.  This work included delivery of services to adults and children under the ATAPS model which provided services to low income clients.
