Liz Jewell, Family Support Officer
Liz will provide support to families affected by Fragile X, or who are waiting for a diagnosis. Liz has a strong background in providing community support in the disability and health sectors. She has worked in Sydney for disability services organisation Northern Beaches Interchange, and as a large-event volunteer coordinator for the Northern Beaches council. Liz has also worked for the MS Society of NSW, CanTeen and Lifeline, and has taught numeracy & literacy to adults and children with intellectual disability. Originally from the UK, Liz has been in Australia since the mid 1990’s.
Liz has a strong background in working with families, carers and children and in providing counselling support, both face to face and by phone. Liz will bring a great deal to the role, and no doubt will help us to further develop the support FXAA provides to the Fragile X community and to extend our networks. Liz will be available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. 1300 394 636
