Treasurer – Board of Trustees
My name is Renae Coleman and I am a proud Darug woman from Hawkesbury, NSW, and a busy a mum of three boys. I am a Registered Midwife and attended Western Sydney University. I currently work at Nepean Hospital as a Birth Unit Midwife. I am a graduate of the cadetship program and an active member of CATSINaM.
I am currently employed by Western Sydney University as a sessional academic teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health to the Bachelor of Nursing and Midwifery students. I have an interest in research and at present I am completing my Bachelor of Midwifery Honours. My research is looking at the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Bachelor of Midwifery students, in hope to improve recruitment and retention and build the number of Indigenous midwives in Australia. As a Midwife I am active in my local health district in developing and supporting our Aboriginal birth workers and students through mentoring and other strategies.
In 2019 I won an award for ‘Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healthcare’ at the Nepean Blue Mountain Local Health District awards night. I am very excited to be part of the Rhodanthe Lipsett Indigenous Midwifery Charitable Trust and admire the wonderful and meaningful work they do in the field of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander midwifery.
