Hi, I’m Hilary. I’m an occupational therapist with over 40 years of expertise in helping people age well. I am deeply passionate about empowering older people to remain independent and at home for longer.
Originally from the UK, my career has encompassed work as a clinician, manager, and project leader across the disability and aged care sectors.
I have worked alongside researchers to develop and deliver the first reablement service in Australia. I have also worked with WA Health to develop the WA Regional Assessment Services and embed reablement strategies for community care organisations.
Hi, I’m Tyler. I lead the LiveUp Navigation team. I am based in WA, but grew up on the sunny Gold Coast.
I initially set out to work as a strength and conditioning coach for a major sporting club but quickly moved into the more rewarding aged care sector. I have spent the last few years working as an Exercise Physiologist providing mobile rehabilitation, exercise interventions, and running group exercise classes for older Australians.
I joined the LiveUp team to be a part of a great nationwide initiative to inform and empower older people in Australia to age well.
Our Navigation team is based in Perth, Western Australia. Our team of Community Engagement professionals are based across Australia.
Contact the LiveUp Community Engagement team to arrange a presentation for your organisation or community group in person or online.
Hi, I’m Kerry and I lead the LiveUp Community Engagement team. Based in Queensland, I’m privileged to work alongside passionate and enthusiastic people, who are committed to sharing healthy ageing information with people across Australia.
My background is in social work, and I’ve held a variety of roles in primary healthcare, subacute care, aged and community care, carer marketing and communications, fundraising, and community relations.
Truth be known, I like to talk! And I’m excited about LiveUp – a healthy ageing resource that is going to help reshape the way we all think about getting older. I plan to ‘walk the talk’ as I too apply healthy ageing strategies every day – a gift to my future self.
Hey, I’m Sally, the WA-based Community Engagement Professional for LiveUp. In my role I connect with people and organisations to discuss the ways in which we can better support healthy ageing and reablement approaches in our community.
You can also find me at community events, presentations, and expos where I talk to older people directly about LiveUp.
Before joining the LiveUp team, I worked in various health promotion roles, focusing mainly on healthy lifestyles, diabetes and bladder and bowel health. Most recently I worked with family carers, supporting them to take a short break and connect with one another.
Hi, I’m Lisa, and I work with the Engagement team for LiveUp. Based in Sydney, I also travel the length and breadth of the country, popping up at expos and conventions to spread to word about supporting independence as we age.
I started as a pastry chef and then studied nutrition (to make up for my sins!), before completing a Masters in Indigenous Community Health at Sydney University.
Over the last 20 years I’ve worked in in the areas of nutrition, food security, and health promotion for not-for-profit organisations including the Healthy Kids Association, Australian Red Cross, and the Continence Foundation of Australia.
Hi, I’m Fran and I work with the National Community Engagement Team for LiveUp. I’m based in Adelaide and promote LiveUp to organisations and communities across South Australia. Along with the LiveUp team, I also promote LiveUp at all sorts of expos and conferences.
Before joining the LiveUp team, I spent over twenty years working in the Australian Public Service and other organisations in aged care, primary care, rural health, population health, and First Nations health.
I love the LiveUp initiative and all the resources that are available to keep people independent, socially connected, and able to continue to enjoy their lives as they age.
Hi, I’m John, the VIC-based Community Engagement Professional for LiveUp. I engage with communities and professionals to promote healthy ageing, social connection and reablement. You’ll also find me at community events and expos in Victoria and supporting my LiveUp colleagues across Australia.
Prior to joining the LiveUp team, I spent a decade as a primary school teacher in England and Australia. I have also worked in education in Emergency Management for 000, where I held roles in call taking, workplace training and quality improvement. I enjoy encouraging people to reach their potential and love the potential that LiveUp offers people to add life to their years, living life their way as they age.
Hi, I’m Emily. I’m one of the LiveUp Navigators based in Perth. Born and raised in WA, I enjoy helping people feel supported and encouraged each day in my role.
After studying Social Sciences and commencing my Masters in Social Work, I spent more than 20 years working in a number of roles including as a Specialised Behavioural Support Practitioner, and Coordinator within the disability, aged care, and child protection sectors.
As a LiveUp Navigator I endeavour to deliver a friendly and professional service that puts people at its centre.
