For as long as I can remember, I have always loved working with people. I have had a variety of experiences and jobs in my life that have led me to working with people with disabilities as a support worker, in management roles and now in support coordination.
After completing my Health Science university degree I moved to London where I lived and travelled Europe for a couple of years. It was here that I realised the value of having a job where I could contribute to the betterment of other peoples lives.
Upon return to Australia I was lucky to find a role as a Community Support Worker for a disability services organisation. I worked with a range of individuals with varying disabilities before becoming a Team Leader for a youth based transition program. Much of my career since then has been working with young adults in their transition from school into the big wide world. I have worked closely with individuals and families with complex needs to create individualised programs with a whole of live approach. I thrive on empowering people to live their best lives and grow in confidence. I’m excited by the opportunities that the NDIS brings and the role of the support coordinator within that.
I am not a very good cook (despite my best efforts!), I’m a keen Richmond tigers supporter (but happy to chat all things sport related!) and a lover of mango (closely followed by chocolate). I like to spend time in nature doing some kind of fun activity, having a glass of wine with friends and travelling to new places.
