I connect participants to their providers, goals, community and their own ability to build capability to maintain these. This in turn ensures participants can then feel and be aligned with their achievements and the small or big steps that make a plan.
Started with Auscare Support: March 2020
I believe I have a very calm and reflective nature, which enables me to build positive working relationships with the participants I support. This allows me to assist the participants I support through challenging periods or crises that arise.
I previously worked in Plan Management, which has given me great knowledge to carry on through support coordination.
I have worked in relationship management roles and NDIS plan management, both of which have provided me with a toolkit of building rapport, creating and maintaining great working relationships, and learning how to be proactive rather than reactive to challenging situations.
Other interesting roles:
I was a lifeguard for 2 years whilst studying, a sense of humor was definitely required in that role!
What’s Auscare Support like?:
Working for Auscare Support has been extremely rewarding. Support Coordination is a challenging role, but with Auscare I have had the opportunity to manage my own capacity and hours. This flexibility is incredibly important for me with a young family.
The Auscare team and management are a wonderful bunch of people. Nothing is too hard or too silly to ask, I have felt really supported as a Support Coordinator and even as an independent contractor.
The role-development opportunities provided have also been great. I think that in an industry where growth is prevalent, this is essential.
I love getting outdoors for a run, exploring with my husband and daughter, walking our dogs, gardening, and spending time with all of our family. For relaxation I enjoy painting or cooking something special.
To sum me up:
I’m an outdoorsy people-person who finds happiness from purpose.
