As a Sydney based educator, researcher, and holistic community worker Mary Carroll has developed strengths in a diversity of teaching and learning contexts. With a focus on human rights based education formalised by a Bachelor of Adult Education (Hons) UTS and Cert. VI TAE (Aboriginal Health College), adaptability and flexibility are approaches that are central to her work. She enjoys facilitating, networking, and has the capability and sense of inquiry to review, develop and deliver flexible learning packages for diverse needs.
Mary has worked across universities, NGO, and Government, and is attracted to challenging roles where empathy and awareness are a prerequisite. Aboriginal Health Education has informed her work in Trauma and Recovery Informed Practice, and Culturally Safe Principals. She has co-delivered Aboriginal Peer Supervision to staff in Brewarrina, mentored students through Advanced Diploma to university for Aboriginal Health College.
Holistic mental health and wellbeing are areas of special interest to her, merging holistic practice as a Yoga and mindfulness teacher, and community education experience. Building on her work in remote communities in NT and SA, Mary is looking forward to volunteering in Balgo WA as a ‘Marlpa’ caring for women at Kapululangu Aboriginal Women’s Women’s Law and Culture Centre.
