Board Members

Darren Davis Cert ED MDI

President

Darren has nearly three decades of experience in road safety, both in Australia and the United Kingdom and has had a long involvement with road safety organisations in both countries.

As founder of the Get Home Safe Foundation, Darren encourages and supports the development of road safety programs to members of all communities and looks forward to promoting safer behaviour to all road users.

Darren is passionate about road safety and reducing road trauma.

Having studied education, behaviours and training, Darren graduated from Greenwich University, London. His research has assisted him with his ongoing understanding of educational needs in the road safety arena.

The Australasian College of Road Safety has acknowledged him for his contribution to improving road safety in both 2015 and 2017.

Rosie Aust

Rosie believes the Foundation is based on a universal fact – one that people tend to forget. Every time we get into a car we are at risk.

That fact has become more important and relevant to her because she is now driving her grandchildren on a daily basis. She wants them to grow into wonderful adults without injuries caused by a car crash. She also wants them to be good, safe and aware drivers when they get behind the wheel of their own car.

In her professional life Rosie worked as fundraiser. She is a regular donor and is philanthropic by nature and she brings those qualities to the Board to assist the Foundation to achieve its goals.

Dr Seuss is one of Rosie’s favourite philosophers. He said

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

She wants everyone to care about the Get Home Safe Foundation so that none of us is involved in a life impacting situation on the road.

Samuel Davis

Director

Sam graduated from Bond University in 2017 and is our youngest serving board member. Having lost two close friends in recent years, he has experienced first hand the devastating affect this can have on loved ones. Sam is passionate about road safety and driver education.

Tracey Mills

As a mother of young adult drivers on our roads, I know that I am not alone when I say I have spent many a night awake waiting for that familiar sound of my boys cars coming down the road and into the safety of our driveway. Unfortunately for some families that sound never comes, and our family has also experienced first hand the devastating impact of that knock on the door.
I am passionate about supporting road education programs for our young adult drivers of tomorrow, and bringing the community together as one to really effect change on our roads.
My Professional life spans many years in Business Management/Governance and Finance across different industries, as well as previously holding Executive Board positions in local Sporting Clubs and Not for Profit working with disengaged youth.

Brad Williams

Brad is our first Associate Member to join the Board. He is an Occupational Therapist specialising in driver assessment and training for drivers with a medical condition or disability.

“Road safety is close to my heart. I lost my Uncle in a vehicle crash when I was a boy. So, although it was when I was young, I really understand the long-term impact losing a loved one to a road tragedy can have on a family”.

Road safety is at the core of what Brad instills into his business as he assists drivers with a disability maintain or regain their driver’s licence.

“I am very proud to be supporting the Get Home Safe Foundation”.
