I help participants to make the most of their plan and achieve their goals. It’s extremely challenging at times, but it’s also rewarding to know that I have helped individuals and families who need assistance navigating the NDIS.
Started with Auscare Support: October 2019
I can work anywhere, even out of a tent office in the outback of Australia. I have the ability to make my clients feel comfortable … so comfortable in fact that it’s like being part of the family at times.
I have worked in the disability industry for more than 9 years now. I also worked as a planner for 11 months with the NDIS, which gave me a good insight into how the ‘engine’ and ‘mechanics’ work and how decisions are made relating to individual funding.
I have a brother with an acquired brain injury, a husband with Parkinson’s disease and close friends and other family members who have a disability.
Other interesting roles:
I have also been a Support Worker for the MABLE platform where I supported a legally blind young lady who enjoyed bush walking like myself. We had a great time out in the bush experiencing everything that nature had to offer and I enjoyed the challenges of guiding and supporting a person who is blind.
What’s Auscare Support like?
I like the flexibility of working my own hours and making decisions on how many NDIS participants I can manage at one time. As long as I get my work done and adhere to policies and procedures of the organisation, everyone is happy.
I like to go bush walking, meet up with friends, and travel around the world. Unfortunately due to COVID the travelling is now within Australia. It is amazing to see your own country and meet so many different and like-minded people.
To sum me up:
I am a highly energised and engaging individual, with a passion to help others and make a difference to the lives of people less fortunate than myself.
