THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF:
WHAT HAS INSPIRED YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO AND KEEP DOING IT?
I was a support worker before I moved into the role of a PBS Practitioner. I worked on a one-on-one basis with an amazing lady every day for over a year. She inspired me to do more in supporting people with a disability to maximise their quality of life. To be a part of a support team that is working towards supporting someone to realise their potential brings me immeasurable joy.
