Selina Spowart – Peer Connector & MyTime Facilitator
Selina Spowart has a 25 year old son with Tuberous Sclerosis, an 18 year old son with autism and ADHD, and a 23 year old son who loves his brothers and is extremely compassionate. Prior to working for ACD Tas, she has spent her career in the hospitality, tourism and travel industries.
Selina writes a blog about parenting children with additional needs, writes for journals and magazines and regularly speaks about her experiences at TAFE, Universities and on panels.
Selina wrote for ACD Tas’s special edition of PEPTalk in May 2017, “A Life Not So Ordinary” which highlighted the issue of family violence where the perpetrator is a family member with disability, with the intent that by raising awareness about this form of family violence we will provide a much needed voice to those hundreds of families across Australia who cannot speak out or share their stories.
She has most recently been involved with RMIT’s PIPPA Project and with the UTAS Law faculty, assisting in the development of course content for police officers responding to family violence incidents.
She loves being outdoors with her two Jack Russells, cooking, music and gardening.
