I became a citizen of Gubbi Gubbi in 2008, whereby I discovered the Nambour Community Centre. I became excited by the range of opportunities available to everyone in this community through the NCC.
Having a background in education, training, community development and managing NFP organisations, I really wanted to contribute to my home community. So I joined the Management Committee in 2016 and stepped into the role of Committee Secretary in 2017.
I am in awe of the vibrancy, vision and passion of the team that make NCC such a vital part of the community.
