Brooke has enjoyed an 18+ year career in the Child and Family sector, with 7 of those years being a part of the FSA team.
Brooke’s passion for Wellness and Self Care has always been at the forefront of her work with both her clients and staff, which lead her to design, develop and facilitate the in-house staff Workplace Wellbeing Program which was rolled out in 2019.
Brooke holds a Bachelors degree in Social Science (Behavioural Science) and Early Childhood Education and an Adv Dip in Counselling which underpins her more recent role as Coordinator Early Intervention (Child Youth and Family Service) supporting staff across three FSA sites; Shellharbour, Nowra and Ulladulla.
Brooke’s leadership style has a strong focus on staff wellbeing, balance, debriefing and reflection, which ties in seamlessly with the Workplace Wellbeing Program which she continues to play an active role in.
With extensive experience as a Family Support Worker, a Group Facilitator, an Educator and a Mother, Brooke knows all too well the importance of taking care of yourself in order to be able to care for others. She believes that working alongside vulnerable families in the community to support sustainable change for children is a privilege and one that requires heart, reflection and empathy; it is for this reason that at any given chance you will find Brooke swimming in the ocean, running for “fun”, playing with her children or grabbing coffee with her friends.
