Profile

I am a true ‘people person’. I love spending time with others and helping those I support live their life, their way.
I am very flexible and adaptive, whether it be to variety in environment, situation, responsibility or types of individuals.
I have strong interpersonal and communication skills and have extensive experience in managing teams and building/developing, strengthening and fostering strong relationships.
I enjoy providing support through being active and busy in the community just as much as one on one in a home environment.
I am an energetic and enthusiastic individual who is very considerate and motivated to support others achieve happiness in their quality of life.
I am very flexible and understanding of changes to circumstances, especially in recent times, and I enjoy being able to jump in and help provide support when and where it is needed.
