Flo is a Gunggari, Kamilaroi descendant. She has been involved In Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health since the early 1970s. After spending some time living in New Zealand and working in the Department of Housing and Education, she returned home to take up the position as CEO of Kambu Medical Centre in Ipswich QLD for 10 years. While in that role she held numerous positions on state and national Boards.
In the past 10 years Flo has worked on workforce development with Queensland Health and the Health and Community Services Workforce Council, and the Closing the Gap program with the Greater Metro South Brisbane Medicare Local. She recognised that in all her previous roles, ASD was never on the agenda in Aboriginal health and is therefore passionate about educating families about ASD diagnosis and supports.
