A Moment With… Tori Cottle, Auscare Support Coordinator ⏱

Why did you pursue a career in the disability sector?
When my grandfather passed away I met his carer at his funeral, she had been working with him for a while. She was as moved by his passing as the rest of us and I wanted to have a career that impacted me the same way as it had her. From there I completed the qualifications required to work in the aged care and disability sectors.

What do you like most about working at Auscare Support?
So far it’s the abundance of support I get. Any question I have is responded to quickly and I am directed to the team member who can best assist me.

Favourite music
Anything punk, Limp Bizkit, Korn, Metallica. I like some pop music too with Pink and Adele being my favourites.  ðŸŽ¤ðŸŽ¼ 🎸🥁

Do you have a favourite saying or inspirational quote?
“The imperfection in me creates the perfection before you: without my impurities, I am not me.”

Do you have any pets?
2 dogs, Scoobs who is nearly 9 and is a German Spitz x Kelpie, and Zedd, a Shar-Pei x Maltese who we have had for nearly 10 months. We originally fostered Scoobs through Scruffer Lovers, a dog rescue organisation, with the intent of finding him his forever home but we all fell madly in love with him. On day 1 we could tell he was Scoobs soul brother, so we adopted him. 🐩

Favourite food…
I’m obsessed with hamburgers but as a coeliac who can only eat gluten-free food, it’s very difficult to get a good one! 🍔
