The Arbre Team

Dr Kerri-Lyn Webb is a developmental paediatrician who specialises in supporting children and young people with developmental and behavioural problems. She believes working with an expert team is the best way to understand and support children and young people. She provides services face-to-face and by telehealth to rural and remote areas. 

Kerri trained at the Mater Children’s Hospital (Brisbane) and the Royal Children’s Hospital Parkville (Melbourne). Since 2001, she has worked as a paediatrician in Brisbane (Royal Children’s Hospital and then Children’s Health Queensland). Kerri has studied public health and evaluation and will study family therapy in 2022. 

From 2015 to 2021, Kerri chaired the Queensland Child and Youth Clinical Network. She worked with systems: service planning and redesign and supporting policies for the health of children and young people. Kerri is a partner and a mother to four “big kids”. Her love for friends and family drove her to co-create Arbre with her friend and colleague, Jordana Rigby.

Jordana Rigby is a family therapist and accredited mental health social worker. Jordana has spent the majority of her career in the field of child development where her passion for understanding individuals in the context of their family grew. Jordana believes child and family development is intertwined and that understanding both is crucial to helping children and families grow.

Jordana has worked across hospital and community settings for over 18 years with many health services including child development, mental health and state-wide services. Jordana completed a Master of Mental Health (Family Therapy) in 2017 which was driven by her desire to work with families and their dynamics to create a unique, nurturing and therapeutic space. Her desire to help families and the strength of her 17-year working relationship with Kerri drove her to co-create Arbre.

She is a mum to two young boys, a lively dog, and a few oddly long-lived fish.
