In 2007, Amelia commenced working for LifeCare as a Supervisor for the Children’s Supervised Contact Centre at LifeCare. Whilst Amelia was completing her Bachelor of Social Work, she worked in a range of jobs, including tenancy manager for Zig Zag Young Women’s Resource Centre and Youth Support Worker for Mercy Family Services. In 2011, Amelia graduated from Griffith University with First Class Honours and went on to work as a Social Worker in the Cancer Care team at the Royal Brisbane Hospital. Shortly thereafter, Amelia was offered the role of Manager for the Children’s Supervised Contact Centre.
