Carrie Hannington

Senior Executive Officer

I initially came from Aboriginal Family Law Services to join Djinda Services as a senior solicitor in February 2016. I took up the role of Managing Solicitor in June 2016 and became the Senior Executive Officer when WLCWA restructured earlier this year. I have diverse legal experience in both the community sector and private practice, as well as in government, public policy, unions and the health sector. I also have many years’ experience in working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in legal practice, the public service and Aboriginal organisations.
