Coach

Mary-Anne
Lewis

Mary-Anne is committed to empowering people to access the wisdom in their hearts and live accordingly. Her first undergraduate degree was a Bachelor of Education [Primary] but she felt perplexed about each student’s innate skills and the current system of measuring or assessing these skills. She completed a Graduate Diploma in Careers Education believing if there was a theoretical model, she could assist young people to find meaningful employment and/or education. She joined Breaking the Cycle and set up a centre in Ballarat, Victoria, [160 marginalised young people were gainfully employed over a three-year period]; a fabulous start.

Mary-Anne was fascinated by the power of the media and felt that if multinationals could persuade people to buy anything, could a Master of Marketing teach her how to get buy-in from young people in relation to their futures. Not quite, so she added a Master of Applied Positive Psychology and the Solution Focused model of coaching to her toolkit and feels she is well resourced to appreciate and provide support to any person wishing to explore their innate wisdom and skills and make these the basis of their paid work

For the past 12.5 years, Mary-Anne was employed at Geelong Grammar School, successfully managing a Middle School Girls’ Boarding House, providing career advice to over 6,000 young people, and working collaboratively with a number of stakeholders committed to educating Indigenous students from local and remote communities.

Mary-Anne is delighted to share her skills and empower those willing to engage with my manifesto. The time is now.

Charities We Support

For each my manifesto experience, a $10 donation will go to your choice of the following three charities.  You will be prompted at the Checkout to nominate your preferred charity.

Charity

Share The Dignity
 

Share The Dignity’s mission is to ensure that everyone is afforded the dignity in life that so many of us take for granted. To bring dignity to women and girls experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, and period poverty through the distribution of sanitary items.

The simple but essential dignity this charity extends to all women and girls, by distributing sanitation items to vulnerable women, meets my manifesto’s fervent wish that no woman should be left behind.

Charity

Australian Indigenous Doctors' Association

AIDA is the peak national body representing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors and medical students. AIDA’s work advocates for a health system that is culturally safe, reflective of needs and inclusive of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s cultural values, which in turn will improve the health and life outcomes of our people.

Inclusion and education vitally concern us at my manifesto. This charity’s work, which represents our Australian first people and advocates for a culturally sensitive healthcare system from which all of us can benefit, is deeply appealing.

Charity

International OCD Foundation

The mission of the International OCD Foundation is to help those affected by obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders to live full and productive lives. The Foundation aims to increase access to effective treatment through research and training, foster a hopeful and supportive community for those affected by OCD and the professionals who treat them, and fight stigma surrounding mental health issues.

Supporting people living with a mental illness is something close to our hearts at my manifesto. This international foundation champions research and provides valuable resources to help us understand the mental illness of OCD.
