Angela's belief that education and learning is the lifelong process of acquiring vital skills and tools to build a sustainable, successful and prosperous life, along with her passion for community engagement, add to her Life Education connection.

After a career spanning more than 35 years in the dental industry,  Angela retired to commit her working time to Wheelton Philanthropy.

Support for Life Education is a family affair for the Wheeltons. Angela’s husband, Paul Wheelton AM, is a long-term and extremely generous supporter of our work.

“Angela very much deserves this recognition. As a supporter of Life Education and the community as a whole, we really appreciate her involvement and generosity.”

David Ballhausen, Life Education Australia CEO
