Kirsty grew up and lives with her family on Mount Sarah Station via Oodnadatta South Australia and is now studying a Graduate Diploma of Psychology, online at Monash University. Kirsty says “the field of Psychology has always been of interest to me but living and working on a station in a remote area has given me a deeper understanding and awareness of the ups and downs that isolation can cause. The town of Oodnadatta faces many challenges and is always seeking health professionals so by living in the area I would add immediacy rather than people having to wait until city help arrived. My study will not only enable me to challenge myself and use skills outside of station life it will also help others in the community and afar”. She will no doubt excel in her field and in line with the Trusts Vision, outback people will gain the benefit of her knowledge and learning.
