Join us for the first Wellbeing Mito Connect Call for 2021, with Shelley Beverley (Psychologist and mito community member). This introductory call will share what you can expect from the Wellbeing Mito Connect Calls this year and offer you the opportunity to connect with other Mito Community members.
Your Host: Sheley Beverley
Shelley and her husband James immigrated from South Africa in 2010 to start their lives in Tassie, leaving their family behind. Shelley is a psychologist working in the disability field and specialised behaviour support, having a passion for helping people. In 2016, she was diagnosed with MELAS, having recently lost her mother at age 63 and brother age 34 to mitochondrial disease. She currently has diabetes, bilateral hearing loss, muscle weakness and a heart condition.
Shelley assists where she can to support the Mito Foundation with mito wellbeing connect calls; awareness week and advocating for legislative change to make mitochondrial donation legal in Australia. She is more than happy to be contacted to talk about her experiences and assist the Mito Foundation community where possible.
