Lija started her career in the disability sector seven years ago. She has experience working as a Support Worker, a Teacher’s Aide and as an Office Manager in a School for Specific Purposes.
Lija’s son has Muscular Dystrophy and uses an electric wheelchair for mobility. She has been the driving force behind establishing junior teams in the NSW Powerchair Football competition so that her son, and other young people with a disability, can participate.
The opportunity to make a difference and play a part in achieving positive outcomes for her clients is the most rewarding part of her role as a Support Coordinator.
Outside of work, Lija enjoys going to the theatre, attending concerts, and spending time with friends and family.
