Naomi is a Wakka Wakka Murri woman, a well-known justice advocate, and the recipient of the 2018 Fellowship for Indigenous Leadership Award. She currently works with the Centre for Innovative Justice, and with Woor-Dungin, where she has been a driving force in establishing the Aboriginal Ex Offender Employment Project.
In 2019, Naomi presented testimony of her own lived experience around Criminal Record Discrimination at the Victorian State Parliament enquiry into Spent Conviction legislation, and arranged a series of community meetings. Her advocacy proved catalytic in persuading the enquiry to recommend a Spent Convictions scheme for Victoria.

She is heavily involved in community activities regarding Aboriginal health, sport, culture and education, and “Dreamtime Dance Troupe”, an Indigenous Contemporary troupe that has danced across Victoria for over 15 years.
