Irene’s most recent focus has been as a single parent to her daughter whilst supporting herself and her daughter on Centrelink benefits. This lived experience encouraged Irene to develop her skill base to assist those in the community who most need assistance by completing her studies in Community Services. Irene studied and volunteered throughout Covid lockdown restrictions, connecting with, and assisting those in the community experiencing extreme hardship.
Irene is passionate about social equality, serving the community and the positive role volunteering can bring to provide resilience and strength to individuals and their communities.
