More information about my experience:

I have been working in the community sector for close to 27 years. I helped people transition out of institutionalised care into group homes in the late 90’s. This is where I gained extensive knowledge and practical application of supporting people with a wide range of disabilities, mental health (mild to complex) and health challenges. This diverse range of experience came from working as a support worker, manager, trainer, project manager and now a director. I worked 17 years in group homes and understand all aspects of SIL’s, SDA and most of all understand the participants needs and supporting them in a way that is going to improve their quality of life.My greatest asset is my experience with complex case management and collaboration. I have worked with people experiencing homelessness, drug and alcohol, intellectual disabilities , dual diagnosis, MS, MND and both brain and spinal cord injury. I have been a support worker and know the practical support needs and but have the ability to case manager all aspects too. I have worked in a collaboration with allied health, housing, department of community and justice, NSW health and the aged care sector.

A little bit more about me:

People are my passion! 27 years in the industry and I am still get moved when I see people empowered. This work is not about me but about the skills, experience and ability to connect and help others. I am fierce about peoples rights and I view it as a privilege that they share their everyday concerns, desires and dreams in their heart.

“You can ‘care’ and not create action. You can use the word ‘listen’ and not really hear the sound of what people really want in their lives! However, I would rather help others find their spark and support them in way that true action occurs and people end up living a life that has true meaning to them!

My professional values are:

I believe values have no true meaning until they are tested and lived out. My values have been tested and they are lived out in the business we have created.

Some of them are:-

Authentic
Courage
Loyalty
Honest
Kindness
Optimism
Compassion
Open-mindness
