Earlier this year, Community Living Australia proudly announced our first ambassador for the organisation — local sporting legend: Jo Hill.
We gave Jo a very warm welcome at our office in Mount Barker — with clients, staff and members of the board in attendance.
Jo is a former professional basketballer having played for the Australian women’s national basketball team (the Opals) during the late 1990s and early 2000s. She has represented Australia at the Olympics winning a silver medal, has won the Halls Medal for being the Best and Fairest player in the South Australian Women’s competition and is a life member of the WNBL — having played for the Adelaide Lightning.
Jo is also one of only eight players in history to have played over 300 games in the competition. She now plays Aussie Rules for the Norwood Redlegs in the SANFLW.
Jo is passionate about our local community and is excited to support us, commenting:
“Community Living Australia is a great organisation doing great things in the South Australian community for people with disability. They also have a strong presence in my hometown of Murray Bridge and I am honoured to think that in some way through my career and profile that I am able to assist in the work they do.”
Mark Kulinski, Chief Executive of Community Living Australia explained, “We are extremely excited by the fact that Jo has decided to join our organisation as an ambassador. We believe we share a great alignment, with our organisation and Jo both being passionate and committed to improving our local communities and I believe together we can help each other have a positive and lasting impact.”
