Elizabeth is a communication specialist and prior to her retirement consulted to the not for profit sector. She previously held the roles of Executive Director of the Mary Potter Foundation and General Manager (Property) at the Masonic Homes, both in Adelaide.
She has been a board member of several organisations and is currently a director of RSL Care SA.
Elizabeth loves Australian children’s literature and regularly sends books to two (of her four) grandchildren, who are growing up in Munich.
Elizabeth is keen to support and promote Australian authors and illustrators. She says: “We have a great pool of home grown talent. It’s a privilege to be in the position to nurture their talent and thus increase the amount of Australian children’s literature available to our younger readers."
Everyone involved with the Trust warmly acknowledges the work of Elizabeth's predecessor, Dianne Gray.
