Why did you pursue a career in the disability sector?
I pursued a career in the disability sector due to having advocated for many years for my younger brother who has a cognitive impairment. I felt my brother was often not treated equally to all those around him without a disability, and I wanted to help him to make the most of his life, and to be treated fairly and in line with his human rights. This has led to me pursuing a career assisting other people with disabilities to participate in society with the same rights and entitlements as anyone else.
What do you like most about working at Auscare Support?
I enjoy assisting NDIS participants to get the most out of their plan as possible, and to make their funding work for them and enable them to live the lives they want to live.
