Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Dancing With Heart Introducing Emma Novosel 

Emma Novosel is a familiar face in the Queensland Police Service, serving as Detective Inspector Crime and Support Services for the Mackay Whitsunday District. In this role, she oversees investigative responses to crime and supports various sections including intelligence, tactical crime, prosecutors, crime prevention, and domestic and family violence. Beyond her duties, Emma was actively involved in school communities, sports, and the arts, as her children attended.

As a participant in Dancing with Heart, Emma embraces the challenge with an open mind and determination. Witnessing the diverse routines of fellow competitors, she acknowledges the commitment and uniqueness each one brings to the event. Despite facing challenges in executing choreography and lip-syncing, Emma is driven by the desire to do justice to Dolly's vision.

Reflecting on the work of the Mackay Hospital Foundation, Emma admires its community-driven approach to improving healthcare across the region. Having witnessed firsthand the care provided by local hospitals, she recognises the importance of bridging the gap between essential services and additional support.

“In my role at work, our responses often involve working with people who are in crisis or experience trauma and our local hospitals are a crucial part of the supporting victims and keeping people safe.


“Raising funds to provide medical equipment and projects in hospitals is so crucial for regional communities to ensure that our family and friends can access exceptional healthcare in our home towns.

“Events like Dancing with Heart bring the community together to raise funds, enjoy a night out and ‘give where you live’.”
