Susan commenced her work with Casey North Community Information & Support Service in 1997. At that time the original steering committee had just been successful in lobbying for funding to establish the centre and had registered as a Board of Management. Since that time Susan has established the service to be one of the primary services in Casey, responding to the vulnerable and disadvantaged. She has grown the organisation to include the programs and resources that are available and listed in this website. She has a passion to work towards a fairer deal for all and a more equitable distribution of wealth. She has formal qualifications including a Bachelor of Arts and Welfare Diploma and a wealth of experience as she has worked in the community sector for over 30 years.
