Virginia Mansel Lees

Lecturer, Faculty of Health Sciences, La Trobe University

I am a lecturer in the Department of Social Work and Social Policy in the La Trobe Rural Health School of La Trobe University based at the Albury Wodonga Campus. Most of my professional working life has been in rural, regional and remote areas of Australia.

My research interests revolve around identity in its myriad of forms and how it materialises throughout the life cycle.
