Our Team

In memory of our dear friend and colleague.
Her contribution to the Shepparton, Denilliquin, Echuca and wider community was significant.
She cared and she made a difference and helped many, many children, adolescents and adults live a full and richer life.
Always remembered and sadly missed.
