Maree had a long career as a primary teacher, sports fanatic, mud brick house builder and farmer in East Gippsland until 2003. After moving to Melbourne two decades ago and expecting the health and disability system to be laid systematically at her feet she was disappointed to find that supports and information for corpus callosum disorders CCD were few and far between. This led to her becoming a co-founder of AusDoCC with a group of other mums across the nation, completing a Master of Public Health at Melbourne University in 2019 and has continued as a PhD candidate, researching quality of life in adults with CCD. Maree is also full time carer for her adult daughter who has partial ACC. She describes her key roles as juggling 3 parallel universes, all of which constantly collide and compete for attention.
