The Team

  • Jane Miller Chief Executive Officer

    Jane has worked in senior roles across a variety of sectors including Banking, Health and Aging, Employment and Federal Government. Her focus has been working as an Operations Manager for several large NGOs with a focus on improving social, education and employment outcomes for Aboriginal people in regional and remote Western Australia.

    Jane utilises her extensive experience to lead the Backbone team for the Connecting Community for Kids initiative, ensuring community members lead the change they want for children and families. Jane considers this work the most rewarding of her career, community leaders are turning aspiration into action, challenging and changing systems working towards transformative change

  • Wendy King Community Engagement Officer

    After arriving from the UK in 2015 Wendy developed a passion for community work, with a focus on the early years and vulnerable children and families across Cockburn and Kwinana. She worked in Falcon as a Centre Manager for a family centre for two years before joining CCK.

    Since commencing with CCK in 2018 Wendy has played an integral role in building strong relationships and connections with families across both Kwinana and Cockburn and ensured that their voices are embedded in our activities and programs. Wendy is our all-round Irish superstar and works on everything from organising meetings, to accounts and event planning. She is the ‘face of CCK’ and if you have ever attended an event there is a good chance you have already met Wendy.

    She is the lead in our Celebrate Culture Kwinana group and works closely with the group to ensure their many diverse cultures are celebrated at the cultural events we run.

    In her spare time Wendy is a keen cyclist and in 2019 she took part in the Busselton Ironman! where she completed a 1.9km swim, 90km bike ride and 21km run.
