I have has been working in the Disability Service sector for over 20 years. After completing a Bachelor of Education Special Education I worked in management with various disability services throughout Sydney, then Newcastle where I am now still based. I have continued my studies and achieved a Graduate Diploma in Disability Studies and a Certificate IV in Aged Care whilst working in aged care for a couple of years. My experience over the years has included working in accommodation, day programs, respite, case management, early intervention and recreation programs.
As a Support Coordinator I feel have a good all round knowledge of the disability sector and of how services operate, having managed them for so long myself. Having a family member with a disability means I can reflect on the importance of honest, person centred support which inspires me to do the best I can do to support the individuals and families I work with.
I love a good challenge and pride myself in providing a high standard of ethical and individual support. Please do make contact and let me know how I can support you to achieve great things through your NDIS plan.
