VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR & LIFESTYLE & LEISURE
Creating a community that supports independence and helps to build and maintain connections is one of my main goals.
My background is customer service, administration and when I started working as a Care Partner several years ago, I thought it would be short term.
Turns out that working in Aged Care was what I really wanted to do and the opportunity to make a difference in someone else's life was where I was meant to be.
I am passionate about encouraging people to become involved in meaningful experiences and supporting each other.
Outside work, I enjoy getting outside and walking our dog, and a day spent in my craft room working on various projects is certainly one of my most favourite things to do.
