BSci (Business Administration / Sociology), Skidmore, USA
What do you bring to the HH work?
Patience, compassion and sense of humour. Also through years of working and raising a family, I bring organisation, management, flexibility and attention to detail.
What have you learned from being involved in the work?
- No survey without service (fix work)’. How important immediate results are to people’s housing and health.
- It is critical to have rigorous methodology and quality data.
- An important strength of the HfH projects is the involvement of community members at many stages.
- The importance of HH’s ability to self assess and then evolve so the process improves.
- The continuity of people is undervalued
In an ideal world what directions, ideas, results would you like to see HH and the Housing for Health work become or achieve?
In an ideal world, HfH methodology would be adopted as a model providing data that can be used to improve the health and safety of people not just in low income housing Australia but internationally. Also, Governments would realise the focus is on the people in the house not just the house.
