Meet Wattle Consultancy Founder, Mikaela Kerwin

Hello, I’m Mikaela, the Founder and Director of Wattle Consultancy. Having lived in regional areas most of my life, I’ve witnessed the inequalities faced by our communities. Wattle Consultancy was born from my desire to bridge this gap, providing access to grants and programs that empower our communities to thrive.

At Wattle Consultancy, we’re committed to transcending barriers that hinder community growth. We focus on projects that enhance climate resilience, disaster responses, and community connection. By nurturing these aspects, we foster economic and social opportunities while preserving our natural environment.

Wattle Consultancy was founded on Wardandi Noongar Boodja. We are privileged to live and work on Aboriginal land and are deeply appreciative of all the Nations around Australia. We extend our genuine respect to all Elders past and present across the nation. We support and celebrate the ongoing and infinite connection that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People have to the land, waterways and sky. We recognise that colonisation has had a devastating impact on this connection, and that the impact of colonisation is continued across the nation today.

Sovereignty was never ceded over the land that’s now referred to as Australia.
Always Was, Always Will Be Aboriginal Land.
