BIOGRAPHY

 

Dr Cheryl Kickett-Tucker is a Noongar woman with traditional ties to the Wadjuk, Ballardong and Yued peoples.  Cheryl was born in Subiaco, Western Australia and has lived most of her life in Perth.  She is a dedicated wife and mother. 

 

Cheryl was educated in both Australia and the United States of America and is currently the Director for Pindi Pindi, the National Research Centre for Aboriginal Children, Families and Community. 


In 1999, Cheryl completed her PhD which explored the sense of self, identity and self-esteem of urban Aboriginal children in the school sport setting.  Cheryl is particularly interested in continuing this research to further explore how urban Aboriginal children think and feel about themselves in the world that they live and how this affects their lives.

As well as completing her PhD, Cheryl also has a Master of Science, a Bachelor of Applied Science and an Associate Diploma of Applied Science.
