Kathleen Hannah

Resilient Communities Coordinator, Tomorrow Changemakers Coordinator

Kathleen is the Coordinator for two Programs with the OzGREEN team, the Resilient Communities Program as well as Tomorrow's Change Makers. 

Kathleen’s passion for protecting the environment saw her complete a Bachelor of Science in Conservation Biology and Ecology and an Honours Degree studying the use of Chronomids as a biomonitoring tool for aquatic salinity.

An interest and desire to inspire saw Kathleen graduate with a  Diploma of Primary Education and has since taught across both Primary and Secondary year levels.

Kathleen has had the privilege of living, working, and learning in a number of Indigenous Communities across the Top End of Australia as both a classroom teacher in a remote community in the Kimberley and working in various positions for the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Education. 

Kathleen’s motivation to reach out and assist the Global Community of women and girls in need saw her start up and coordinate a local chapter of 'Days for Girls', a volunteer based, not-for-profit organisation providing handmade reusable menstrual kits here in Bellingen.
