Volunteer of the Month December 2017
Tell us a bit about yourself
I am lucky enough to work in all our lived experience engagement programs and coordinate all our amazing volunteers. I began as a volunteer here 4 years ago and my background is in the mental health sector.
What inspired you to become a Hepatitis Victoria Volunteer?
I started volunteering with Hepatitis Victoria when I was doing my undergrad in psychology. I became interested in working with people who have experienced stigma and discrimination.
Your favourite Hepatitis Victoria sessions or moments
My favourite moment was when Kate and I were finally able to implement the chronic disease self-management program we had been working hard on. It was great to see people benefit from our work and grow each week.
What tips do you have for new volunteers?
