Professional Bio

Since 2015, Amanda has been involved as a survivor-advocate on a number of projects at the Melbourne Research Alliance to End Violence against women and their children (MAEVe) and Safer Families, including the Experts by Experience Framework. Through this work she has co-presented and facilitated at workshops, seminars and conferences such as the inaugural Safer Families CRE international conference.
