Spotlight on Wunan Staff – Natasha Short

30 September 2013

“I seek to support Aboriginal people through the change process, and achieve better outcomes for children and families”. 

Natasha joined Wunan as a Programs & Partnerships Manager on Monday 26 August 2013; Halls Creek Children & Family Centre, Burraluba Hostel and Dural Education Excellence Program will form her portfolio.

A descendant of the Djaru people, Natasha’s original home town is Halls Creek albeit Natasha has spent most of her time in Kununurra.  Natasha speaks English and Kriol (of the English Creole Language family).

Believing that education is the doorway to a prosperous future, Natasha has worked extensively in areas of justice and education, supporting Indigenous people to broaden their horizons and benefit from the opportunities that modern Australia affords them.

In addition to her work in the East Kimberley, Natasha also lived and worked for a number of years at Looma Community in the West Kimberley.

Natasha offers a compelling vision and optimism for the future of Aboriginal people, attained by hard work and a commitment to change. Her recent tenure as a member of the Board has been instrumental in shaping Wunan’s direction and she now takes her life experiences and passion for Wunan’s mission to deliver practical solutions and real outcomes. Natasha is a welcome addition to the Wunan Team.
