Grace gave her story, along with the stories of 16 other heroic survivors, to Nina Funnell’s #LetHerSpeak campaign because she saw the injustice of Tasmania’s gag rule, which prevented survivors from freely self-identifying.

Her main objectives are to allow survivors to tell their stories without fear of being judged. Also, to educate the public about the process and long-term consequences of grooming. And to work with policymakers and decision-makers to ensure that the federal legal system supports survivors rather than perpetrators.

She is also a committed yoga teacher, visual artist, and long-distance champion runner, having set a new female race record of 2:59:31 at the 2020 Ross Marathon. She frequently appears as a keynote speaker, television guest, and advocacy pundit.
