Nelly is the winner of Triple J’s National Raw Comedy competition, a Jean Hailes for Womens’ Health Official Ambassador (2016), a columnist, activist and regularly heard on ABC radio.

Firefoxes was formed by local women following the Black Saturday bushfires as a means of socializing, sharing ideas and discussing issues, particularly those affecting local women following the 2009 bushfires.
Whilst the group is female-focused, Firefoxes welcomes everyone to their functions.
Firefoxes hold monthly functions on the last Friday of the month throughout the year at various locations throughout Murrindindi Shire.
