Lucy brings an understanding of teenagers that is so good to be reminded of. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and what I learned about myself and the teenagers in my life.
Lucy brings both her professional and personal experiences to the program which is invaluable. Her sharing of personal experiences was so helpful in understanding that there is no perfection and it is always a work in progress.

Lucy is the founder of the Why Be You Project.
Working as a facilitator and youth worker and currently a PhD student, Lucy's study has been focused on what behaviours are taken on in adolescence that lead to some of the lifestyle illnesses that cause so much harm later in life.
As a parent and educator, Lucy has embraced her responsibility as a role model to young people by supporting them to build self-esteem and self-worth as foundational life skills. Drawing on her life experience, wisdom and way of living Lucy works with parents, teachers and youth workers in how they can positively influence change in a young persons life.
With a background in media production, presenting, complementary health, youth work, local community public health programs and projects, Lucy bring this richness of life experience to the Why Be You workshops and presentations.
