Di is the longest serving Child Protection worker from the Warrnambool office with 26+ years and counting. Child Protection workers are often misunderstood but are hidden heroes keeping children safe and helping families heal. Di’s passion for families being the experts of their own lives, her practice and wisdom guiding new workers, and her strong commitment to social justice, has seen countless great outcomes for our most vulnerable children and families in our community.
Di is a respected lifelong community member known for her passion for people, the environment, and the Gunditjmara community. She is also loved for her ‘uber eats’ by her kids and those she knows need a meal.
Generous, humble, colourful, authentic, passionate, committed, energetic, non-judgemental, one in a million is how those who know Di describe her. Her light sparkles bright.
