I love people and I believe life is about people. Without them there wouldn’t be much to life. At school I completed Community and Family Studies in the HSC and I then went on to uni and graduated with a Bachelor of Social Sciences, majoring in Psychology. When I ended up in this industry it felt perfect for me. I started at St George and Sutherland Community College (SGSCC) disABILITY in 2008.
Our clients are some of the happiest people I know and I just loving working at the college. I truly value the opportunity to be a positive influence in their lives. Simply by making them smile, giving them independence and helping them to learn, I myself can learn new things along the way.
SGSCC disABILITY provides support to people in the community with a disability. We have three main programs – Kringen, STEP and Literacy & Numeracy. I get very excited about trying new things in my work. Anything that helps make the client’s lives easier and of a better quality is awesome.
Communication is a big issue and I love finding new ways to help clients get their message across. Ultimately that’s all anyone really wants – to have others listen and to hear what we have to say, and also to be supported in achieving our goals – big and small.
