Peer Training Coordinator
I’m Suzy and a proud Aboriginal woman residing in the Hunter. I have two children who I raised on my own with support of my wonderful family. I have lived with a disability most of my life. I am vision impaired along with my sister and brother. We grew up not having the isolation that disability can sometimes cause. I have had great jobs and have studied and lived a life where my disability hasn’t stopped me doing things I want to do.
What I am passionate about are things should be accessible for everyone. This includes accessing information, forms in a way that works for an individual.
The other passion of mine is that all women have the right to be safe from harm. I started the women’s group because I realised that talking to other women with disabilities we all had similar stories about being vulnerable in relationships and settling for less then we deserve. I believe that when we come together and share our stories as women we become stronger and can build each other up.
