Dr Lyn Stavretis
DWDV Board Member
I began my professional life as a Social Worker specialising in individual and group counselling before moving into management, academic and consulting roles, establishing my own boutique consulting business over 40 years ago.
I’ve strengthened the performance of Boards, Executive teams and committees and worked in a voluntary capacity to chair Regional Educational Committees and lead the Management Committee of my local Probus group.
I spend most of my time now working as a facilitator and coach with members of the Victorian Public Sector and tertiary education sector around issues of leadership, organisation culture, values and performance feedback and development.
I’ve always been passionate about helping people to feel confident, clear and empowered about how they work and live.
As a new member to the DWDV Board I hope to work with the team in continuing to create clear, dignified and empowered ways in which people can choose how they die. My 92-year old mother and I both have our Advanced Care Directives in place, after attending educational sessions with Dr Rod Syme, and the issues around Voluntary Assisted Dying have great currency and some poignancy for me.
