Tori's biggest goal in social marketing and life in general is to endeavour to make positive changes around her – no matter how big or small. Wherever life takes her, it is important that she is contributing positively to all those around her.
Her current project
Tori is currently working on the ‘Leave It’ project. This project forms the basis of her honours thesis. Leave It aims to reduce koala and dog interactions in a Brisbane region. Dog attacks in the region have a significant impact on koala population and this program aims to increase wildlife aversion training as well as improving basic training techniques such as ‘sit’ and ‘come back’. Leave It draws on a variety of different inputs such as 4-week training programs for community members and their dogs, wildlife aversion training for dog trainers and fun events such as ‘Dog Fest’. A strong basis for this project was a collaborative design between dog owners, regional council and dog training experts which help to ensure an engaged and meaningful outcome.
What inspires Tori
Tori's lives by a motto from a very popular children’s story; Peter Pan. It keeps her believing in herself. Tori is inspired by, most simply put, happiness. The look she sees on someone’s face when they are smiling and their eyes are bright - that total happiness inspires her. To her, it's infectious.
The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it
