Amelia Chaquebour

Inspired by her large family and growing up in the Kimberley, Amelia has chosen a career in health care. As a strong, Aboriginal woman with Yawuru and Baardi Jawi family connections, Amelia is passionate about taking her skills and knowledge back to communities and promoting better health outcomes for Indigenous Australians.
While staying at Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi, Amelia completed a Certificate IV in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healthcare and has since moved to the Northern Territory to continue on her journey in health care!
