Director / WA Spokesperson
Christine is a mother who has experienced first-hand the intense emotional loss of a child. Benjamin James (28 years old), the youngest son of four children and a father of two himself, tragically passed away after losing a battle with drugs in May 2015 from a prescription drug overdose. It was this heart-rending tragedy which brought Christine from the shadows as a parent to the forefront to openly share and work to make a difference to the future for other people, parents and family members. Christine also serves on the Board of the Merredin Community Resource Centre and United Merredin Against Drugs (UMAD).
