Profile

I have been working in the Aged Care and Disability sector for just over 20 years now.
I am a dedicated, respectful, empathetic, reliable and very experienced worker who has a positive and happy-go-lucky outlook on life.

I am passionate about my work and provide a high level of support and care to my clients while helping them maintain their independence.
I help support my clients to reach their goals by showing them just how bright they can shine and showing them their very own greatness.

My calm, patient, caring, professional and approachable nature allows me to provide the kind of support that is beneficial and meaningful to not only the person I am caring for but also their families.

My interests include photography, hiking, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, camping, country drives, beach days and exploring new places in this beautiful country of ours.

I currently hold a current First Aid and CPR certification.
