Trilby Ryan

Engagement and Project Manager

Wiradjuri woman Trilby Ryan works as our team’s Engagement and Project Manager. Trilby weaves this work around her two young children, a larger immediate family of 12, and managing her partnership business that specialises in carpentry construction and livestock and grain farming.

Trilby spent more than five years working for Government in Canberra as an adviser and in administration roles where she had the opportunity to travel extensively across Australia, meeting people from some remarkable and often quite remote communities. Prior to that, Trilby worked in the Australian Public Service and not-for-profit administration positions within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs.

More interesting though, Trilby spent her childhood travelling around Australia in a motorhome, as well as fishing for freshwater bream and dodging crocodiles as she swam in the river whilst living in the Gulf of Carpentaria Northern Territory.

Trilby draws energy from the interesting and wide-reaching experiences of people she meets, and does all she can to open doors of opportunity for others throughout her networks.

Trilby holds two bachelor degrees in social science (Criminal Justice) (CSU) and Management (UC), a Diploma of Government and a Certificate IV in Indigenous Leadership.

Working with 33 Creative, Trilby cherishes the opportunity to engage with people across the country, whilst living on country that’s good for her soul – Cowra NSW.

She’s willing to give almost anything a go, including roles such as 33 Creative’s own Fashion Coordinator for the National NAIDOC Awards Ceremony in 2019.
