The National Committee

All members of the committee, subcommittees and project organisers are volunteers who donate their time, skills, and energy to further the mission of the association and to try and make our community better for all of us.

David Garland
President, Media & Interfaith Officer
David is the founder of PAN Inc. He started the public full moon circles in Sydney's Seven Hills that have run continuously since 1997. Although raised a Roman Catholic and an altar boy at the Church until age 14, he found that, after a discussion with the priest about graven images and idol worship, this was not the place for him.

His Italian Grandmother, who read playing cards, first sparked his interest in Tarot and things magickal. David has been practising earth-based magick since 1986, as a healer, Tarot reader, and psychic, and leading to his formal Gardnerian Wiccan training.

David has been President of PAN since he founded it in 1997.
Pete Christie
Vice President & Diversity Officer
Learning and practicing Sharmanistic styles of healing and energy workings as a child, Pete has been involved in magic, energy movement and healing most of his life.

Pete has conducted many public and private rituals with Ostarian Grove and The Circle Of The Cross Roads and his private practices include Family Vodu, Chaos Majick, and Sharmanistic works.

Bec Hearne
Charlotte, or Charli for short, is an eclectic and somewhat eccentric Wiccan. They have been practising witchcraft since 2016. They were raised a Christian, however they never found their spiritual belonging in Christianity. From a young age Charli has found themselves attracted towards witchcraft. Charli has a keen interest in history (especially that of various pagan beliefs and cultures) and is somewhat of an activist for people with a disability and the LGBTQI community.
Karen Rolls
Events Coordinator
Karen is an eclectic pagan witch that errs on the side of earth magic. Her journey continues to one of learning. She started her journey at the age of 10 with her first vision while sitting under a willow tree. She is currently an Event Manager and looks forward to supporting the PAN committee to deliver some wonderful events.
Janine Donellan
Summon & Sell Coordinator
Cassandra Le Grand
General Committee
Cassie has been a part of the PAN Committee for many years and have been Secretary for quite a few of them. Her main goal as a committee member is to increase the awareness of paganism for all, pagans and non-pagans alike and she feels that being part of PAN with our educational focus is the best way to do so. Her personal motto is that “Knowledge is Power” for the more knowledge you have the more power you have over your own life to make choices and embrace opportunities.

Cassie has previously served PAN as secretary from 2005 to 2018.

His belief system can be best described as eclectic, but tends to worship the Nordic goddess Freya the most. Vincent is a strong believer in individual freedom and has respect for those of differing beliefs and hopes to aid others in achieving this.
Katrina Keshishian

Kat is an eclectic Witch who believes in growing the Pagan Community and ensuring a safe space for all Witches and Magickal folk to learn and grow.
