Mrs Vanessa Fowler (Co-Chair)
Vanessa is the Chair of the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation and a wife, daughter, mother of 2 boys, and aunt to 3 beautiful young girls who tragically lost their mother in 2012. As a result, she and her family were thrust into public attention following the death of her sister, Allison, and they have turned a tragic situation into a positive example of making a difference in the community.
Vanessa is now on a journey to educate bystanders in the prevention of all forms of domestic and family violence and has also been instrumental in coordinating the annual Strive To Be Kind Day for the last 7 years, which started with a small committee of just 2 and has grown into a major event on the Foundation’s annual calendar. She is committed in everything that she does to make her sister proud, taking the grief and anger the family has suffered and turning such a tragic circumstance into a positive.
