Individualised Services South Manager
Tell us about yourself and how you got here?
I’m originally from South Wales in the UK and moved to Oz with my family in 2006.
I’m a big champion of people and a mum of one. I first started with Inclusion WA in 2012 whilst still at university. I applied after finishing up at my other job at a pizza shop and just wanted to try something different. I’ve always got along well with people and enjoy a challenge so gave it a shot and have been around ever since. First I started off as a Community Inclusion Facilitator at our Maddington office, then a transition Facilitator in the new Cockburn office and now as a Coordinator.
Can you tell us something cool about your local area?
My local area frequently hosts food trucks and family fun get together’s on the local oval which is always a good time. They also have a great dog culture where you’ll see the regular dog walking crew at the same time every day and everyone is generally really welcoming. I love that most of the people in the neighbourhood have been around for quite a while and are quite passionate about keeping the area family friendly and inviting.
What is one of your favourite quotes?
“ Nothing in nature blooms all year long, don’t expect yourself to either”
I like this quote as it helps me keep a healthy perspective on life. It reminds me that there are different seasons in life that we all go through. Some are more for pushing, striving, planning and dreaming and others are for recouping- I believe this is important to understand especially working closely with people.
How would you best friend describe you in 4 words?
Loyal, Integrity, Leader, Loving
What is your favourite way to spend a Saturday?
My favourite way to spend a Saturday would be going out for breakfast somewhere (probably Duck Duck Bruce in Freo) with my family, going for a walk at the park or doing something active and then having friends over for a games and pizza night.
If you have superpowers what would they be?
To teleport so I could travel the world in a day.
