I am a luna palawa with traceable ancestral lineage to the North-West through Grandfather nicermenic and the North-East through Grandmother tangunutara. I have worked with community based organisations and the Australian, State and Territory governments. I have also worked overseas. My expertise includes policy development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, drafting and interpreting legislation, especially, but not exclusive to Aboriginal Affairs. I am also experienced in developing and nurturing relationships between organisations, as well as expertise and knowledge of how government policy actually works and affects people on the ground.
A mother of two young children, I enjoy going bush and continuing cultural practices with particular interest in language, weaving and shelling. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Aboriginal Studies and Psychology, and a Master of International (public) health.
Angela's 3 year appointment as a Council member will end on 13 August 2020.
