“In every situation there is a chance to learn and develop understanding”


Unfortunately, a PhD in psychology didn't prevent this focused professional from being diagnosed with a no known cause and incurable neurological condition that affects 2.5 million people worldwide.

While living in America and lecturing undergraduate and postgraduate students at Stanford University, a sudden loss of sensation and function put Simone into "intuitive action mode".

This impressive and engaging young woman jumped on a plane to come back home to Australia, to - in her own words – to the best medical system in the world. Experience with various overseas health systems had given this intelligent woman an appreciation of the Australian health system.

Fortunately, Simone had the undoubted support of her partner, family, friends and employer following diagnosis. This always puts a newly diagnosed person with multiple sclerosis ahead in the journey to come.  Simone launched herself into an information search in an attempt to take some control of what felt like at the time, an unpredictable situation.

Maintaining a positive outlook is vital to Simone, and this is made a little easier with the presence of a beautiful and very busy young son.  Angus is her number one priority and Simone has a fundamental belief that family and friends are the most important and valuable assets anyone can have to carry with you, through an unpredictable life.

What they said:
“A wonderful ambassador for MS.  Explained everything so well.  Answered questions in an easily understanding way.  Great sense of humour.
