Professional Bio

Fiona ran away from her 28-year domestic violence relationship eight years ago. When she left, she vowed she would speak out about domestic violence and, in some way, change the perception of women who have had this experience.

Fiona was involved in the ANROWS and University of Melbourne WITH program, in a series of digital stories helping to promote understanding of intimate partner violence. She has become a passionate advocate and speaker, sharing her long experiences at the First International Domestic Violence Conference in 2018 (as keynote speaker) in The Guardian, in a YouTube video for North Western Health, and at North Western Health. She has also been involved in webinars for the Black Dog Institute, NWH, ANROWS and MAEVe, and last year’s 16 Days of Activism panel at the Royal Women’s Hospital.
