Originally country bred, Jean is now living in the heart of Sydney. She spent seven years living overseas, in England, Germany and Canada, where she gained a husband, attained BEd (Canada) and taught at a high school near the Black Foot Reservation. Upon her return to Australia, she began teaching in country and city schools, any subject requested.
After retirement, Jean took computer classes at TAFE and later did some casual teaching there.
In recent years Jean has volunteered extensively at three community centres, and supported her local community in many and varied ways, including creating the artwork for a quarterly 16-page booklet, delivered up to 10,000 households.
This publication has now been replaced by their website.
In 2006, Jean set up a computer training program, taking over the Internet café for group classes, and can still be found there every Saturday.
She has been the ASCCA Trainer in the former Pitt St Office for many years, and has recently switched to full online delivery for ASCCA through MS Teams.
Media Co-ordinator / Be Connected Lead Digital Mentor
Natika lives on Mirriwung Country (East Kimberley) in the far north of Western Australia and had been involved in the West Australian Community Resource Network for some 17 years in varying roles and communities.
In 2017 the Kununurra Community Resource Centre made the decision to cease operations in the town after 25 years supporting social and community development and the digital aspirations of many, many community members. A self-confessed tech head, who loves to share her knowledge about all things digital and social, Tik has been supporting many micro and small businesses and individuals for years as they land on her doorstep.
Upon the cessation of the Kununurra CRC Tik started her own business supporting micro and small business in engaging with their technology to ensure the best return on investments of capital and time, she still troubleshoots tech challenges for people on a regular basis, and spends a large part of her working week working for ASCCA in the Be Connected Project and Marketing the organisation.
