Meet Gurri Wanyarra’s Community Engagement Coordinator, Michelle!
I’m really excited to be joining the team at Gurri Wanyarra as the Community Engagement Coordinator. I have a passion for working alongside the community to create recreation activities for people from diverse backgrounds.
I’ve worked in the Community Services industry for over 20 years specialising in community development roles across local governments in Northern metro Melbourne to develop inclusive leisure options for all.
I recently had a break from work to spend time with children and relocate from city to country. It is fantastic to be back working again. I enjoy my role, but I also feel that it is so important for my children to see their mother engaged in the workplace.
What’s TV show are you hooked on at the moment?
At the moment I am hooked on the TV series American Crime on Fox Showcase.
Where do you see your career in five years’ time?
In the future I want to be running my own business from my property in the country, offering team building training and leadership workshops.
How do you incorporate health and fitness into your lifestyle?
I am lucky enough to be surrounded by bushland where I live, so I am able to live a healthy and active lifestyle within my natural environment through bushwalking. I always enjoy the cooler weather to get out hiking in forests around my property.
