Co-Founder and Executive Director
Rose is the Executive Director and co-founder of Satellite. She qualified as an Occupational therapist many moons ago and was clear from Day 1 that she wanted to work in the field of mental health, and hasn’t veered from that moment of clarity back in 1977. Her journey with Satellite began in 2008 after working with this specific focus since 1995 here in Melbourne. Conversation with trusty colleagues: ‘We can’t let the programs we’ve developed and love just disappear. Let’s start a Foundation, it can’t be that hard!’ Rose remains in denial about this and still passionate about giving voices of hope and strength to children young people and families. She has three amazing adult children and dreams of walking the mountains of Ethiopia.
