Director role a “way to give back”

Meet new Kurrajong director Trudy Standley

Trudy Standley firmly believes it was services provided by Kurrajong that helped her daughter Maggie to walk and talk.

Maggie, the youngest of four siblings, first began therapy at what was then called Early Interventions, when she was six months old.

“We believe her ability to walk and talk are due to the therapy she received.”

Trudy, who is the principal at North Wagga Public School, and who also owns Open Mobility with her husband Michael, is one of Kurrajong’s new directors, appointed at the organisation’s AGM in October.

It is a role that took no time to accept, such is her belief in the work being done by the Kurrajong team.

“I didn’t need any think time to accept my nomination. I believe it is a way I can give back to the organization that my daughter still benefits from today.”

“The disability sector consists of the most beautiful, caring, and dedicated humans who support individuals with a disability and their families and this support is a lifeline for most.”

In her spare time, Trudy loves spending time with family and friends, heading to Merimbula whenever busy schedules allow, travelling (she and Michael are firm fans of finding great craft beer breweries wherever they travel) gardening, and walking the family dogs.
