A passionate local doctor, devoted health advocate, and successful business owner has been recognised as a finalist for the NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year award.

The NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year award recognises a role model who promotes economic, cultural and/or social opportunities for Aboriginal people in NSW.

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said Dr Casey Sullivan was a local champion who deserved to be recognised for her outstanding contributions to the local community.

“Dr Sullivan is an exceptional doctor, much loved by her patients, who shares her responsibility to provide exceptional care with the responsibility of running a highly successful practice in Tamworth,” Mr Anderson said.

“She’s also a mother of four and a highly respected mentor to local aboriginal youth, and I sincerely thank her for enough of her outstanding contributions to our community.

“She is the perfect example of a mentor and a role model for young girls in the Tamworth electorate, a shining light to young girls who dream of future success in their personal and professional life.

“Dr Sullivan’s commitment to her patients, her colleagues, her practice, and her community has deservedly been recognised with this nomination and I warmly congratulate her for that achievement.

“I’ll look forward to joining Dr Sullivan at the NSW Women of the Year Award ceremony in March and join with the community in wishing her good luck.”

The NSW Women of the Year Awards recognises the women and girls whose determination, bravery, skill, and passion has inspired their communities and others to achieve great things.

The 2024 NSW Women of the Year Award recipients will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday 7 March at the International Convention Centre, Sydney.
