Kymberley commenced her involvement in the criminal justice system with Corrections Victoria in the Community Corrections section in 2008 and held various positions as a case manager in the court and parole stream for a period of 10 years.

Kimberley’s passion in the criminal justice system commenced with assisting clients to achieve their rehabilitation and treatment needs within the community sector in order to enhance their current skill set to reduce their risk of re-offending.
