Having recently moved to Melbourne from Tasmania I wanted to continue my employment with an organisation linked to the NDIA and landed at Ablelinks door. I have spent years working in Banking and Employment Services where I gained the skills to assist individuals through often complex situations. During my time in Employment Services I worked for a Disability Employment Services provider before moving to Job Services Australia/jobactive where I assisted individuals with disabilities and complex clients with non-vocational support before moving into Management roles.
My move into disability services started over two years ago when I started working for a partner of the NDIA in Launceston Tasmania, firstly as a Local Area Coordinator and then moving into the role as a Service Area Manager for the Local Area Coordinator team, where I supported Local Area Coordinators support participants who were first accessing the NDIS or completing the review process in addition to implementing their plans.
My strengths include my ability to talk to anyone (my nickname is Miss Have a Chat), and my understanding of the NDIS contract and the best way to use your funding to maximise supports and results. I am also eager to learn and share my knowledge with others. I am passionate about the NDIA and support those to be the best they can be.
Outside of work I am a Mum to a human child and three adorable cats who are named after Geelong Football Club players. I procrastinate over housework and I love catching up with friends for a meal or a latte.
