Hot-off-the-press: along with a new rebrand and focus, in January we appointed five new Board Members including our new Executive Officer, Pamela Brown. Pam comes to us after 10 years as CEO of the Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation, recruiting a dedicated team that provided vital support to children and youths from families affected by mental illness. Her dedicated work in the field saw her honoured as Sutherland Shire Citizen of the Year in 2017, and as a National Finalist for the Australian Mental Health Prize in 2018.

On a personal note, Pam and her husband have lived in the Sutherland Shire for 38 years, where she is a dedicated member of the community through the local Rotary club. She has 3 children, 2 granddaughters and a beautiful Labrador named Moet.

With over 20 years of expertise in the Not for Profit, Private and Public Sectors, Stepping Out is thrilled to have Pam leading our team.
