Ms Anne Taylor
Anne was born in Ayr and raised across the river in Home Hill. She is of Irish and Torres Strait Islander descent with connections to the Dauer Meriam tribe from Mer (Murray Island).
The Queensland Government provided Anne with an avenue to enter the workforce and the positions she has held over the past two decades have allowed her to build her skills, ability, knowledge and experience in working with and for individuals and families experiencing vulnerability, disadvantage and marginalisation.
Anne has a broad range of experience in child protection and family reforms, community development, project management, procurement and contract management in the North Queensland region such as Burdekin, Palm Island, Charters Towers/Hughenden, Ingham and Townsville.
In 2017, she decided to complete further studies and received a scholarship with the Department of Communities, Child Safety & Disability Services Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholarship program to study a Bachelor of Human Services through the University of Southern Queensland.
