My name is Wendy Brooke and I have been a radio broadcaster for 14-15 years now at 3KND. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Psychological Science at the Australian Catholic University, and I am hoping to work within the Justice Department when I graduate.
I want to work with our people on trauma informed care and implement some strategies to help bring some healing into their lives. I do volunteer work with a lot of different organisations in the community. I recently got married to my soul mate and life is good.
I am a board member to add my experience and skills to First Australians Media Enterprises and 3KND. Thus adding strength and durability to an organisation that is pro-active in our community.
