Hi! Great to finally meet you.
Aviva Beecher Kelk, Co-Director and Co-Founder
Aviva here. I’m a social worker and PhD student with a background in research, mental health, community development, and project management. I like cooking and dancing, and sometimes I cook and dance at the same time. True story.
Jenna Moffat, Co-Director and Co-Founder
My name’s Jenna. I’m also a social worker in Melbourne’s disability sector. Having worked as a team leader, I’ve been very involved in both clinical and organisational change management within my workplace. While my hair isn’t as colourful as some, I do love to use all the colours of the texta and post-it note rainbows.
Tristram Peters, Captain Content
Hi, everyone! I’m Tristram, a sports-obsessed wheelchair-user with a Master of Arts (it sounds fancier than it is). I have worked and volunteered in the disability field for most of my adult life, both as a public speaker and wheelchair sports organiser. I even used to write for ‘Ramp Up’. But because honesty rocks, I’ll confess that my life goal is to finish a long-gestating Marx Brothers play.
Mark Brown, Data Guru
Hi, I’m Mark, I’m a researcher, consultant, and wheelchair-based humanoid with interests in disability, health, and decision making. In 2013 I was awarded my PhD from Deakin University. I live in inner-city Melbourne with my fiancée and her dog, and the odd pigeon.
Yonah Festinger, The Fixer
I’m Yonah and I keep all our subscribers and community members up to date, keeping you informed about our website improvements, community events and many, many awards. I’d like to think that I was chosen for my role because of my extensive training and experience in communications, design and customer service but it’s probably nepotism (I know the boss). Current hobbies include full-time baby gestation, trying to keep my breakfast down and longing gazes at the soft cheese in my fridge.
Beck Hitchcock, Engagement Enthusiast (Service Provider Engagement)
My name is Beck Hitchcock and I am proud Social Worker and Entrepreneur. I am enthusiastic about everyone living life to the fullest and being the best version of themselves. When I can, I train for the Great Australian Bake off and share the spoils with my family and friends.
Clare, Project Officer
Hey, I’m Clare. I’m a Social Worker with a background in Brain Injury and Mental Health. I love the thrill of chasing solutions, and am a fun, outgoing person with a first class sense of humour (well, I think I’m funny). When I’m not meeting up with people and talking Clickability, you can find me crocheting, riding my bike, singing with friends or reading terrible fantasy novels.
Would you like to join our team? As a social enterprise, we are always keen to hear from people who might like to volunteer with us. For more info about how to get involved, see our current vacancies or email us at [email protected]. Be sure to tell us a bit about how you’d like to help.
A big thank you also goes to Emily Dash who set up the Clickablog Emily did an amazing job founding this section of Clickability, working collaboratively with a group of writers to have their stories and opinions shared.
Thanks also to consultants, friends, mentors and sponsors:
