Oral health therapist and TFI Dentistry owner Stephanie Wilson has been named by YWCA Queensland as one of Queensland s leading women. Redlands Centre for Women founder and coordinator Katrina Beutel is included in the YWCA Queensland list of 125 leading women.
REDLAND’S own tooth fairy Stephanie Wilson, the late poet and writer Oodgeroo Noonuccal (Kath Walker), formerly of North Stradbroke Island, and Redlands Centre for Women coordinator Katrina Beutel have been included in the YWCA Queensland’s list of 125 leading women.
The women listed were each nominated by the Queensland community as representing leadership in Queensland.
This year, the YWCA marks 125 years of continuous work with and for the women of Queensland, and the list of leading women was established as a tribute to the thousands of women who have helped make the organisation and Queensland what it is today.
Stephanie, who owns TFI Dentistry at Thornlands and Labrador, was recognised for being the first oral health therapist to open her own dental practice in Queensland.
She also delivers an oral health program in Australia’s eastern mainland states and was a finalist in this year’s Telstra Business Women’s Awards.
Stephanie said she felt honoured and humbled to have been acknowledged for what she does for the community and for children and their families.
Oodgeroo (1920 to 1993) was a prominent political activist and a successful writer.
She was Queensland’s state secretary for the Federal Council for Advancement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and a key figure in the campaign for the constitutional reform that allowed Aboriginal people full citizenship.
Katrina is the founder and coordinator of Redlands Centre for Women, a not-for-profit charity based in Cleveland.
Through the centre, Katrina has established a range of significant programs and services for women, including the annual Redlands Women’s Expo, a program to support and educate young mothers, weekly wellbeing programs, the distribution of Pink Pamper Packs to disadvantaged women, and more.
