JESS HIGGINS, Manager (VIC/TAS)

“Hi, my name's Jess.  I've been a Registered Music Therapist since 2015, when I founded Jig Music Therapy, providing music therapy services to children and adults in the Geelong and Ballarat regions of Victoria.  During this period I also loved running Sing&Grow 8-week group programs with vulnerable families, helping to facilitate a positive change in the way that caregivers and children interact and relate through shared music.  In 2019 I joined the Sing&Grow management team and am now responsible for the Vic and Tas Sing&Grow team and program development.  It's a pleasure to work with this special team of music therapists and am passionate about growing our Sing&Grow services in Vic/Tas, especially in regional and remote areas.”

LORNA BERRY, Manager (QLD/NT) Learning & Development

"Hi, I’m Lorna and I am not only immersed in managing Sing&Grow clinical services in QLD and NT, but also co-ordinating the Learning & Development for the national Sing&Grow team. I have been involved with Sing&Grow AUSTRALIA since I was a Post Graduate Music Therapy student in 2004, and am passionate about using music to build collaborative relationships at a family and community level to make a positive difference in the world."

CATHERINE WILMOT, Manager (SA/WA) Program Integrity

"As well as managing all Sing&Grow services across WA and SA, I am responsible for the internal evaluation of various aspects of our project to ensure that we provide the best possible service for families. I have been a music therapist for more than 20 years, and have been involved in some capacity with Sing&Grow since 2005.  I have always been passionate about music therapy, but I have been especially thrilled to be working with Sing&Grow as I have seen first-hand the impact on families and young children."
