2015 Monica Provan

Monica Provan


Monica returned to CODA in early 2013 as the Capacity Building Project Officer. Since then, Monica's role has changed dramatically, supporting staff and clients, as the manager of the day to day operations of CODA, and finally in the position of CEO. Monica has recently completed studying the representation of disability and difference in text (literature), and also has minors in cultural anthropology and primary education. During her absence from CODA, Monica has been the manager of training and employment services for people with disabilities, a Program and Service Adviser with DHS and more recently the Rural Access officer at the Colac Otway Shire. Monica prefers life on the busy side being involved in quite a few community groups and is a bit of a ‘stuff smith’, working with a variety of materials including hot glass and metals to make jewelry and other bibs and bobs.
