“Maree is one of those rare people who have an enormous heart and passion for children, a powerful intellect that enables her to turn her skills to a huge range of activities, an instinct for relating with people of all ages and backgrounds and a value base that makes her a pleasure to work with. It is always a delight to come across someone in whom you can have absolute trust, to know that whatever project or programme they are working on will be undertaken with wonderful attention to detail and full, honest feedback. Maree is that person.
Over eight years or so she has been involved with Child Matters in numerous roles, but most recently as the tutor for the Diploma in Child Protection Studies. Her absolute commitment to child protection and superb teaching and coaching skills have inspired so many of the people she tutored to become true advocates for children, that her influence will have a lasting legacy.”
