A little about me.

What inspired you to become a Support Coordinator? After working in various paid and volunteer roles and studying within disability and education over the years, I was looking for my next challenge when an opportunity came along. I loved the idea of being able to assist people with finding the right support for them.
How long have you been working in this space, and what do you enjoy most about it? I’ve been working within the space for almost 2.5 years now and the thing that I enjoy the most is meeting new people.
What types of support services do you specialise in or have experience with? I would describe myself as an all rounder but I have an interest in mental health and neurodiversity.
Can you tell me about a particularly rewarding or memorable experience you’ve had while assisting someone? I’ve had so many that it is hard to pinpoint one, even just  hearing that someone was able to overcome their social anxiety and depression and be able to complete a task. Things like that may seem like little things for most people but they are huge for them. And also getting updates on the physical skills that someone is improving with in their therapies, those updates really make me smile.
Are there any resources or programs you find Interesting and beneficial for a lot of your participants? I’ve been really impressed with the Chill Program run for young adults with Autism in South Brisbane.
What do you believe are the most important qualities for a Support Coordinator to have? Being able to listen and be empathetic and understanding.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Any hobbies or interests you’d like to share? I love to bake and create, also I enjoy going to parkrun and bouldering and spending time with family and friends.
Tell us something we don’t know, but need to know? I have three kids and a dog called Micah and my name is pronounced like Erin.
