</div>

<div style=”text-align: left;”>I didn’t meet Ces in prison and there’s a big part of me that’s pleased about that as I would have met my match I’m sure. I met Ces at a PFNZ conference I felt like I’d known her all my life, we clicked. I didn’t know her well but I love all that she had to say and I support her legacy in wanting better for the women who need support.<br>
<br>
My story is not much different from other women who have been to prison. Our paths may have been different but our journeys are the same. I came from a typical family in the 50’s, the youngest of 3 with a stay at home Mum, and my Dad was in the fire brigade. My life changed dramatically when my Dad killed himself in our family home. I was 11 years old.<br>
<br>
The adults in my life made bad decisions in handling me and any potential trauma. I was sent to school on the day of his funeral and I was supposed to act as if nothing had happened. I had seen my Fathers dead blue body lying in our kitchen – how could I forget that image let alone process that as 11 year old. <br>
<br>
This unaddressed childhood trauma led me down a path of self – destruction. At 12 years of age I was in my first state institution, my experiences in state care led to more trauma. I was 16 when I first experienced prison, and over the next 30 years I managed almost 12 years prison and 138 criminal convictions.</div>

<div style=”text-align: left;”>Nothing ever changed for me in prison – it was part and parcel of my life and it became comfortable. Where do you go when the damage is done? What do I do and where do I begin? It took an encounter with one of my victims to change my life. This encounter triggered my passion for RJ.<br>
<br>
In 1996/7 I trained to be a RJ Facilitator and was a founding member of HBRJ. The journey to get here was not an easy one, but I have had some amazing support along the way.<br>

<div style=”text-align: left;”>My former boss Kim Workman has been a mentor and has been my biggest champion on and off the battlefield. I piloted the first RJ service into a NZ prison back in 1998/99. Kim was then the director of PFNZ, he later employed me as National RJ services manager. We went on to grow a very successful RJ service running RJ programs into 14 prisons. We facilitated over 200 RJ conferences in that time. Kim and I were also joint recipients in an international award for our contribution to RJ globally.<br>
<br>
However the road was never smooth. We lost our funding in 2010 and all the RJ programs in prisons stopped. I am baffled as to why this funding stopped although I do have my suspicions!</div>
