Mrs Kassandra Payne
I am originally from Canberra, however I have lived and worked in Darwin for over 10 Years. I completed my masters at CDU, as a member of the first cohort of the Masters program. I started out as the student rep for the committee and have enjoyed working across a number of roles and now NT Chair. I work in private practice working with clients across the life span. I have developed a passion for working with transgender, gender dysphoria, and non-binary clients as well as the broader LGBTQI+ community.

I believe the Clinical College is important to support our profession and encourage our students and early career members be the best they can be. I see my role as helping the committee administratively as well as engaging in event planning and listening to members.
