Education/Qualifications: 

Hopefully starting a bachelor of education, majoring in special education and primary in July 2024. I have a cert 4 in Nutrition, cert 3 in Assistant Dance Teaching and Sport & Recreation. I always thought I would go into the sporting industry as a exercise scientist or myotherapist, but when I started as a support worker that all changed. I have been working in the disability industry as a support worker for 2 years now and have absolutely enjoyed learning about those who I have worked with. 

    

 

Hobbies/interests:

My hobbies include:

+ Reading; definitely a crime/thriller lover!! Have just finished reading the Good Girls Guide to Murder series. Highly recommend! All time favourite series is the Enemy by Charlie Higson, also highly recommend!!

+ Being outside and exploring nature

+ Dancing; 15 years of dance under my belt

+ And being with my dog Noodle. She is my baby, my best friend and was the best spur of the moment decision I ever made

I live by the motto of “Life’s too short, make the most of it”. This quote was said by my favourite youtuber Tom Cassell (Syndicate/Life of Tom). I was brought up it a poor family, we didnt have much. I have always been taught to take it one day at a time as you never know what could change the next, which is what this motto is about. Its even tattooed on my body!

I am passionate about helping children and young people. I myself am a big child at heart, and have always worked with kids. I feel so at home when I’m around kids and young people. I enjoy learning about the individual I work with, and being able to grow with them along the journey that we are on.
