A Moment with Kate Johnson
Why did you pursue a career in the disability sector?
I was a participant once and always felt the sector lacked passion. I wanted to become the Support Coordinator I didn’t have and look after my clients to the best of my ability.
What do you like most about working at Auscare Support?
The ability to work autonomously with the backup of amazing colleagues. Nothing is too hard and phone calls are always answered.
Jodi Picoult. She always has incredible twists at the end of her books I never see coming.
Westlife has been a definite favourite. But I love all pop/rock songs. Depends what I’m in the mood for!
Do you have a favourite saying or inspirational quote?
"Imagine what you could do if you knew you couldn’t fail!"
Do you have any pets?
I have a cat called Smokey. She is hilarious.
Do you have any hobbies?
I am a sports mum! haha. Always taking my kids to soccer, rugby, cross country running. I love interacting with the clubs and catching up with other parents.
If you could invite anyone to a dinner party (past or present), who would they be?
Hmmmm that’s a hard one. So many people to choose from!!
My mum’s Southern Fried Chicken.
Favourite holiday destination...
Tamworth. I went there with my fiance in 2019 and absolutely fell in love with it!
Don't just take our word for it
“Finally! A provider of Support Coordination with sound knowledge of their role and comprehension of how the NDIS framework operates. I can now spend more quality time with my son, trusting that the plan we have worked so hard to achieve will be under Auscare Support’s Guidance.”
