Nadja is a psychologist who is currently in private practice working primarily with the Indigenous community and children and families. Nadja completed her honours degree in 1991, she then ventured into a maximum-security prison and then onto Lifeline Darling Downs & South West Qld Ltd in a professional capacity. 

From this point, Nadja has held many varied roles, including a return to working in custodial settings for Sisters Inside/Women’s Legal Service, then on to the UK where she worked for Rubicon, a specialised residential facility working with young people with high needs and challenging behaviours.

Nadja brings a broad knowledge base from both a local and international perspective.  Nadja considers part of her role to be an advocate and voice for those in need. She strives to bring an understanding of the issues faced by marginalised and minority populations to the broader community. Nadja thoroughly enjoys the therapeutic endeavour associated with her day job, along with advisory roles.

Nadja Jones joined the Board in September 2016.
