A little about me.

What inspired you to become a Support Coordinator?
I have a rich background as a Senior Practitioner for NDIS as a Partner in the Community and also bring a wealth of experience in health, individual, family and community services to my role. I have a demonstrated history in the Community Service Sector and this underscores my deep commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those I will serve. I would like to support the community and make a true difference for the lives of those diagnosed with a disability or developmental delay.

How long have you been working in this space, and what do you enjoy most about it?
I gained my Bachelor of Pediatric Nursing from The Queensland University of Technology 2009 and worked as a Registered Nurse for many years following this. My previous work as a Partner in the Community for NDIS assisted me to develop the required skills to be able to effectively assist participants to navigate and utilise their NDIS funding. What I enjoy most about being a support coordinator is helping people to achieve their goals and to see their continual growth with the appropriate services in place.

What types of support services do you specialise in or have experience with?
Previous Medical Knowledge and expertise with understanding the requirement and role of therapy and assistive technology. Extended knowledge of Early Childhood Approach and Developmental Guidelines. I also hold extensive knowledge about the legislation and practice standards. I am passionate about the effective utilisation and monitoring of supports to ensure a participant excels to live their best life.

Are there any resources or programs you find interesting and beneficial for a lot of your participants?
I was previously a key member for the Family Support Collective of Logan which was a local level alliance with the government that was started by several non for profit organisations in alliance with the Logan Council. This directive focussed on improving the access and awareness of the services currently available within the Logan and surrounding community. I have consistently attended the local area coordination workshops for the Gold Coast and Logan regions for more than 3 years. I also have worked closely with the Public Health Network South and North - providing key guidance and support within NDIA.

What do you believe are the most important qualities for a Support Coordinator to have?
The most important qualities for a Support Coordinator to have are respect, empathy and commitment to being an advocate and trustable guide for participants. It is integral to understand the NDIS Legislation and the rights of a participant in order to continually improve and promote advocacy for participants.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Any hobbies or interests you’d like to share?
I have a lovely family of Husband and two dogs who I thoroughly enjoy spending my time with. I love Halloween and anything spooky or attempting to be. You can catch me at every Broncos home game at Suncorp!
