What was your background before volunteering with Advance Care Planning Australia?

I have a background in nursing, midwifery, aged care, research, management and coaching.  

What led you to begin volunteering?  

I am a strong advocate for people having the right to choose what medical treatments they will accept and what they will not accept.  

What is your favourite part of volunteering with Advance Care Planning Australia?   

I enjoy helping people to understand what is important in their life and giving them the tools to record their preferences so they’re available to guide end-of-life decisions. 

What’s one thing you wish more people knew about advance care planning?  

I wish more people understood the importance of having end-of-life conversations about their wishes with family and loved ones while they are well.
