The American Women’s Association was established over 80 years ago as a philanthropic organisation aimed at bringing American women together.
Over the years, our organisation has raised over $4 million and provided thousands of volunteering hours to the Royal Children's Hospital.

    Member Since 2015
    I came to Australia to be with my partner. We met in Austin through friends and started a very long distance relationship. After a year we decided it was time to make a move, so here I am. The majority of my free time is spent looking for a job and networking, as I quit my last job in Austin where I worked in the sustainability industry, managing…

  • International Relations
    Member Since 2012
    When my husband accepted a position at Swinburne in 2010, our list of “boxes to be checked” began: Dogs through quarantine, house leased, quit job, goodbyes to friends and family, etc. The last piece of advice I was given by my friend from NZ was to join AWA as soon I arrived. I am so glad I listened to her. AWA was not only a social network to…

    I enjoy my time with family. We love to be active in sports and outdoor activities. My husband is Australian and that is how I came to live in Melbourne. I joined AWA initially to connect with other Americans and participate in activities.

    We love Australia! Wilson’s Promontory is our favourite place in all of Victoria – the beach, mountains, a river and WOMBATS! Melbourne has ruined me for all American coffee…

    Member Since 1976
    I married an Australian (whom I met in Spain) in 1976 and made Melbourne my new home. I was introduced to the AWA through friends from Kodak and have been very proud of the wonderful contribution our American group has made to the hospital over many years. Meeting the needs of sick children particularly touched my mother's heart. I enjoy reading,…
  • Content Writer for Dermfx
    Member Since 2015
    I came to Australia because of the classic love story- girl meets boy, but boy lives 7,941mi away! I have been living between Melbourne and Orange County since Feb '14. I love to cook and fancy myself as being quite domesticated ;) I also enjoy a variety of physical activities including yoga, cycling, weight lifting, runs along the Yarra River,…
