Senior State-wide Educator, the NSW Health Education Centre Against Violence (ECAV), President, the NSW Bilingual Educators Association Inc.
Eva is an educator who has overseas training and experience in journalism. After establishing herself in Australia she completed social science and welfare studies. She has worked in counselling, casework, community development, group work, training and management.
For nearly 30 years Eva supported individuals and groups of different cultural and linguistic backgrounds on health and welfare issues. Before joining ECAV, Eva was coordinating the Bilingual Community Education Program in Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD), managing a pool of female educators of diverse backgrounds, delivering health educational programs to women’s groups in their respective communities.
In her current role, she is working around domestic and family violence issues experienced by women and children. Eva believes that health and other government services need to be more inclusive by delivering informed and sensitive responses to migrants, refugee and asylum seekers, who have experienced trauma, violence, abuse and neglect.
Eva brings to DV West, her knowledge and experience of working with culturally diverse groups who are impacted by domestic and family violence, as well as intersectionality of other forms of oppression. Eva sees DV West as a service that has a great capacity to work effectively with women and children of diverse minority groups by recognising additional issues – different forms of tactics used against them, barriers stopping them from seeking safety, secrecy and shame associated with DFV. Eva believes DV West is in a position to increase access and equity of service delivery to clients of different cultural backgrounds.
