Aspie Women@Work: Diagnosis & Disclosure Panel


Join us Join us to hear from a panel of four Aspie women talking about their experiences with adult diagnosis and disclosure decisions on Sunday September 15th at Bayview Eden Hotel 

About the Presenters:

Jacci Pillar Jacci is an autistic comedian and producer with a background in anthropology who jokes their life has been "solving conundrums no one knows they have”. Jacci has just completed a large scale Melbourne Fringe Festival opening night showcase as producer, performer and MC titled “Tickets on Myself”.

Sandra Bennett:  Sandra is our volunteer Assistant Treasurer on the Board and works in IT for a large corporate. She describes herself as a "one job, two husbands (in series), two children (in parallel), Aspergers everywhere (in the family), straight to the point, good with patterns" kind of lady.

Andrea Lenard: After 25+ years working in IT Andrea decided to pursue her passion for naturopathy, working various jobs part-time to pay the bills. Unfortunately, a tsunami of anxiety brought her working life to an end.  Fortunately, an astute psychologist recognized her Aspie characteristics, and diagnosed her in May 2018. The world is now her oyster.
