Julie Volunteer

Julie Kent

"Two active kids, a Labrador and part-time study - this is why I'm never bored!"

Julie is a busy woman! When she's not studying for her University degree or being a doting mum to her two girls (and a cute Labrador), Julie goes on weekend retreats around Melbourne, reads, writes, visits friends and goes sailing.

Living with an incomplete C5, C6 SCI, Julie, having had one child before her injury and one after, has invaluable experience to share in terms of pregnancy, giving birth, and parenting from a chair. She lives with her wonderful daughters, uses a power and manual wheelchair, and makes her way around the city on trains, taxis and her car, which is driven by carers.

Julie is living with C5 incomplete spinal cord injury for the past 19 years.
