Jan (Program Manager)
Hi, I joined MEDA as the Program Manager in September 2013.  I come to MEDA with over 20 years of experience in the health and disability sector.   I hope to strengthen MEDA’s core programs of individual and Volunteer Citizen Advocacy and the future direction and viability of MEDA.  I am committed to empowering people with disability and protecting and promoting the rights of all people with disability.
I work Monday – Thursday, part time, 4 days a week.

I love working as the Business Support Officer at MEDA on Tuesdays.


Hi, I am MEDA’s Senior Disability Advocate. My role is to provide advocacy with people with disability in the Manningham, Maroondah, Monash, Whitehorse and Boroondara areas. I have just completed a Diploma in Mental Health / Alcohol and Drugs which has increased my knowledge and broadened my areas of expertise.  I always strive to get the best outcomes possible for people in a timely manner. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and spending time with family.
I currently work Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays.

Hi, I am Miranda and I am a Disability Advocate at MEDA. I support people with disabilities who may need support sorting out an issue they are having or need help to feel heard and be part of decisions that affect their lives. I have worked in the disability sector for over 6 years and am currently studying a post-graduate certificate in Disability and Inclusion at Deakin University. I am committed to promoting and defending the rights of people with disability and working towards a more inclusive and accessible world.
