Guest Speaker:
Senior Sergeant Kerrie Hicks.      “Walk and talk” – The importance of mentoring

Kerrie is a mentee in the 2015-16 Victoria Police and Rotary Leaders Mentoring Program. Kerrie and her mentor, Central Melbourne Sunrise’s Stella Avramopoulos, spent three hours in their first mentor session chatting away and decided rather than sit and talk, that they should walk and talk. And so it began... walking and talking during their fortnightly mentor sessions around Abbotsford, evolved somehow (possibly bubble related at The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Ball), to successfully tackling the Oxfam Trailwalker.

Kerrie joined Victoria Police in 2001. She has performed various roles within Victoria Police in both frontline duties and criminal investigation and is currently performing the role of Collingwood Police Station Commander. She has a Bachelor of Arts (Criminology), Graduate Diploma of Business Management and a Graduate Certificate in Fraud Investigation. Her expensive love of travel has taken her around Australia, New Zealand, South America, India and South East Asia.
