Meet Vanessa

Vanessa is a worker at the Hotline.

Having studied three languages other than English, taught language, literacy and numeracy for many years, and worked with government and non-government organisations on Indigenous human rights, Vanessa understands many of the obstacles that callers to the Reading Writing Hotline face.
Vanessa works as a Hotline Teacher, helping adults find the right course for their needs. She is excited that this role provides the opportunity to bring her experiences and her education (including a Bachelor of Aboriginal Studies and post graduate degrees in adult education, TESOL and LLN) to this position.

Vanessa is excited by her new role taking calls on the Hotline and the opportunity to bring her experiences and her education (including a Bachelor of Aboriginal Studies and post graduate degrees in adult education, TESOL and LLN) to this position.
Vanessa is also thrilled to be contributing to a project which aims to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders access to the Reading Writing Hotline, strengthen relationships with other service providers and locate and list literacy providers in ATSI communities.
