Mandy has worked as a primary school teacher in the public and independent education system, since 1999.

Mandy took a career break when she had young children working as a tutor in the School of Education at Notre Dame University and a practicum advisor for beginning teachers.

Married to Julian to whom she has Charlotte (12) and Liam (8), Mandy’s first experience of mental illness was post-natal psychosis in 2010 and since that time has received mental health care via a psychiatrist and psychologist.

Mandy is currently teaching part-time as an English Additional Language or Dialect (EALD) teacher, which she enjoys thoroughly.
