Jill has been the Chief Executive Officer of the Western Australian Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies ( WANADA) since 2000.  Jill is passionate about supporting strategies that promote equitable access to services by marginalised peoples. Jill's work involves sector capacity building, supporting quality processes, and advocacy for systems reform that promote alcohol and other drug dependence as a health issue. Jill graduated from the University of Western Australia with first class honours in Anthropology with a thesis on women and drug use. She developed the WA AOD Sector Quality Framework in 2004. This has now been developed by WANADA into an international accreditation standard for the alcohol and other drug sector.

Sector Development Manager, Marcelle George

Marcelle has worked in a range of health settings, including in blood-borne virus prevention. She is particularly interested in the cultural processes that determine the use and acceptability of various drugs, and is keen to explore how very pressured health budgets can be reconfigured to comprehensively prevent drug-related harms (or at least allow early and effective intervention). As Sector Development Manager while Maree Stallard takes  leave, Marcelle looks forward to resuming prior working relationships and developing new ones with the committed people who work in the alcohol and other drug sector.
