Meet Kelly Cartwright and Joel Corey: our youth and environment ambassadors.
Kelly Cartwright is a 2009 World Record holding paralympic sprinter. The Geelong resident had her right leg amputated after being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer at age 15. Forced to give up her beloved netball, but determined to stay fit, healthy and active, Kelly represented Australia in the 2008 Beijing Paralympics at age 18. She currently holds the World Record for the 200 metre sprint (above-knee amputee). Kelly works in Barwon Water's Marketing and Communications team.
Joel Corey is a Geelong Football Club dual premiership player. The AFL champion midfielder is considered one of the top stoppage players in the competition due to his hardness at the contest and clean handball skills. Joel claimed the club's best and fairest honours — the Carji Greeves Medal — in 2005 and 2008, and has twice been selected for the All-Australian team. Joel is part of Geelong's 6-man leadership group. He works in the Marketing and Communications group at Barwon Water.
Our ambassadors are often out and about at community events around the region. Feel free to say hello!
