Womens Health and Care Conversations

Panelist 1 – Jo Williams
It’s not about the dot points. It’s about the spaces in-between. Those spaces are the glue that hold the dot points together. The pain, the scars, the humanness of our flaws is what interests Jo Williams. The bond is more than any great success or flashy car.

Panelist 2 – Amy Cadd
Amy Cadd is a Palliative Care Nurse, Poet, Writer, Performer, Mother and Lover of Nature. She endeavours to live her life with purpose, passion, curiosity and compassion…and with a decent seasoning of courage and cheekiness on top!

Panellist 3 – Carolyn Mandersloot
Carolyn Mandersloot’s stand up comedy takes inspiration from parenting teenagers and surprisingly, her career as a Palliative Care Community Nurse.
Her friendly demeanour and depth of knowledge allow her to delve into the difficult subject of life right before death with a light and compassionate touch. He comedic storytelling style unravels tales that are both funny and memorable.
Carolyn was a QLD state finalist in the Melbourne International Comedy RAW Competition in 2018 and she recently performed in the Comedy Lounge Show as part of Anywhere Theatre Festival.
