Jacqui has a background in education and training and has previous experience working as a social worker in the out-of-home care sector. She has a unique combination of skills across performance consulting, instructional design, and as a facilitator and content writer.
Jacqui has always felt driven to support the needs of children and young people and is a strong advocate of youth mental health. In 2018, Jacqui founded the Gratefulness wellbeing program, now delivered as an online program to primary school students across Australia.
Throughout her career, Jacqui has consulted with a wide range of both government and non-government organisations, including the NSW government, TAFE NSW, Westpac Bank, PCYC, and the Mental Health Coordinating Council, and has more recently been involved in co-producing content for the new Healthy Minds app; which is an initiative of the Australian government and the Raising Children Network.
Jacqui is particularly interested in trauma-informed care and understanding the impact trauma can have on an individual’s physical, emotional, and mental health. She is keen to help professionals and individuals take this framework from a place of ‘knowing’ to ‘doing’ through practical and engaging e-Learning and training.
