Eloise Fay – Chairperson
Welcome. I am honoured to be the Chairperson this year. I enjoy sitting on the committee so that I can support and witness the wonderful healing work that happens at CASV. I strive to play my part to actualise the CASV vision to eliminate sexual violence while providing counselling and support to the survivors. It is a privilege to serve amazing women, serving amazing women.
I am a grief counsellor and high school teacher. I have a Masters in Counselling and Bachelors in Business and Psychology from QUT. Outside of work I enjoy walking my dog, going for picnics and reading.
Chantal James – Secretary
I have had the pleasure of serving on the CASV Management Committee since 2017 and the tireless work and enthusiasm of these women never ceases to amaze me. Every counsellor, administrator and volunteer are committed to providing advocacy, dignity and hope to the Womyn in Logan and Redlands. It has also been heart-warming to watch the Supporters Against Sexual Violence continue their work to empower women who have survived the trauma of sexual assault.
I graduated from Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada) with a Bachelor of Sociology and M.A. in Sociology, specialising in quantitative methods and French. I have an extensive background in research, community services and currently manage the Centre for Work, Organisation and Wellbeing at Griffith University. It is a privilege to work with a team of experts who use rigorous academic processes to bridge the gap between workplace research, practice and policy to help meet the demands of a constantly changing and adapting business world.
I have experience managing research and evaluation projects, with a specific interest in topics relating to gender, employment, health and wellbeing. I have also designed evaluation frameworks and project implementation plans relating to youth, education, settlement, event management and social enterprise initiatives.
I feel humbled to play a part in supporting the CASV team to achieve their goal of providing a safe space for women to heal.
Lynette Denning – Treasurer
I am the Treasurer on the Centre Against Sexual Violence Management Committee and have been in this role since February 2017. I enjoy working alongside my Management Committee colleagues to provide support to the wonderful and hardworking staff of CASV. My previous work as a Finance Officer working within Women’s Health, Sexual Assault and Domestic and Family Violence services in Ipswich and Logan has given me considerable experience to be able to provide knowledge and assistance when required. It is a pleasure to hear all the wonderful and positive feedback from women who access CASV.
Kirstin Reglin – Committee Member
I have served on the Management Committee for CASV since May 2018. During this time, I have observed with deep admiration the extraordinary passion and dedication that exists within CASV to empower women toward reclaiming their lives after sexual assault. Every staff member goes above and beyond to support and advocate for these brave survivors and I feel honoured to be affiliated with the women of CASV. I work in a finance admin role at QUT, and live on a sailing boat with my husband and three cats. In my downtime I love rock climbing, travel, hiking, sailing and motorcycle adventures.
