Her background is in child protection, and she has worked as a manager and practice leader in Victoria and Northern Territory, and has also managed out-of-home care services in Victoria including Adoption/Permanent Care and a therapeutic contact centre.
In 2009, Prue undertook a Churchill Fellowship investigating models of care for children with FASD in the US and Canada. She currently works at the Victorian Fetal Alcohol Service (VicFAS) diagnostic clinic at Monash Children’s Hospital and is supporting the CETC and the Australian Childhood Foundation to develop an integrated FASD-trauma practice framework.
