Mrs Sammi Fatnowna
Sammi Fatnowna is the National Project Manager at the Malpa Project. She coordinates the roll out of the Young Doctors Project to communities around Australia and provides support to staff who prepare, plan and deliver the project.
Sammi is a teacher by profession with over 20 years of experience. This has enabled her to work on a range of projects and develop contacts in various organisations over the years. Her teaching experience has ranged from teaching in the central desert country of Western Australia to casual teaching in London, UK. She has spent the last few years in the Kempsey area of New South Wales.
Having mainly taught Aboriginal students over the years, Sammi became passionate and knowledgeable about ear health education support. This led Sammi to become involved in itinerant support teaching students with hearing impairment. Initially this was with caseload students and for the last nine years it has been with community education around conductive hearing loss.
Sammi’s passion for educating students about ear health has led to the development of a range of teaching resources which are found on the EarInfoNet web resource.
