Published in the NAB Reconciliation Action Plan 2013, p.

Cherie McAdam joined NAB’s Indigenous Money Mentor network in 2012 to work with clients in the
East Kimberley of WA. Cherie is based at Wunan in Kununurra and works directly supporting clients in their transitional housing program. She is passionate about helping her people
create a stronger financial future, including preparing them for owning a home and protecting their asset.

Cherie said, “One of the things I talk with my clients about is how their money is like a water hole. When there’s not enough to go around,the waterhole dries up. But when it can
be spread around to other places, it starts to green up a whole lot of other areas in life”. Cherie is also the author of her own book ‘MoneyBird’,a tool she uses to explain and understand the types of ‘money personalities’ people are.
