I was a support worker for just over 4 years whilst I completed my Social Work Degree. I have worked with individuals with acquired brain injuries, short term accommodation and doing 1:1 support in peoples homes. Working with people 1:1 and being able to fully devote my time to working as directed by the individual I was supporting has always been my favourite part of support work and I was able to learn so much from the people I have supported which also informed my social work practice.
I am passionate about person centred care and applying this in a meaningful way. I researched the impact of the needed workforce growth of the NDIS on the reality of participant choice and control during my Honours year of Social Work and how lack of choice of providers and workers impacts the overall aim of choice and control. I strongly believe in active choice and control remaining at the forefront of the NDIS and look forward to working with people to support them to have choice and control over their supports and their lives.
In my spare time I enjoy listening to live music and cooking delicious food. I also love travelling (mostly to try delicious food!).
