Joan has been the backbone of Community Services Industry Alliance’s since its inception.

Originally recruited to the cross-Industry project team that established the CSIA, Joan is now the organisation’s Governance and Office Manager.

Between her native homeland of Scotland, and her adopted home of Australia, she has 20 years’ experience in the Community Services Industry.

In that time, she has been proudly involved with three successful start-up organisations, including the CSIA.

Through Joan’s unique lens of experience, her CSIA colleagues gain invaluable insight to both local and national aspects of the Industry. She further builds on those insights through her private sector expertise.

Joan has a passion for the combination of community service and business experiences she gets with the CSIA, thriving on being part of a busy, dynamic and growing organisation.
