"Being able to use the knowledge that I have gained from my family’s own NDIS journey to help make another person’s experience a little less difficult is what motivates me each day."
What is your role with Plan Partners?
I’m a Support Coordinator, which means I help people achieve their NDIS goals by supporting them to navigate their plan and find service providers that are the best fit for their requirements.
What did you do before Plan Partners?
Before joining the Plan Partners team, I worked for the State Government in several roles across Youth Justice, Child Protection and Screening.
What has been your favourite Plan Partners moment?
My favourite moment (so far) was being able to help one of my customers engage with a service that allowed him to connect with others who have had similar experiences to him. This came at a time when he was feeling particularly isolated, so that connection was so important and beneficial.
What drives you?
I have always found helping people to be incredibly rewarding. Being able to use the knowledge that I have gained from my family’s own NDIS journey to help make another person’s experience a little less difficult is what motivates me each day.
What advice would you give someone starting their NDIS journey?
The NDIS may have a steep learning curve but understand that you are not alone. There are many people who are willing and able to help you, so take the time to find someone you really trust.
