Rochelle Younger

Rochelle joined the DoGood Volunteers board as Company Secretary in September 2021. Rochelle is a commercial lawyer, with over 20 years experience in private practice and in-house at start-ups and more established companies in the digital, telecommunications and energy sectors, specialising in competition and consumer law, advertising, IP, privacy and regulated products and services.

Rochelle’s sons recently participated in the Thirteen program and she now looks forward to continuing her involvement with the Twelve & Thirteen program as a board member. She believes that the program offers a unique and important opportunity to broaden participants’ understanding of challenges faced by others in our community and to experience first hand the positive impact that participants can have – both on others and themselves – by volunteering just a few hours of their time.

In her spare time, Rochelle loves to travel, host elaborate dinner parties, see live music and spend time outdoors with her family and two labradoodles…though these days, she would happily settle for a simple dinner with her extended family around the table, a long weekend away and a walk along the beach or through a national park surrounded by big trees.
