Support Coordinator | QLD
"You’re not alone in your NDIS journey, so if you’re not sure what is possible with the NDIS, I’m always happy to show you!'"
What is your role with Plan Partners?
I'm a Support Coordinator. My job involves so many tasks and no two days are the same, but if I had to explain it in a sentence I’d say that I help people with disability to work out what they want out of life, and how to get there with the help of the NDIS.
What did you do before Plan Partners?
I’ve worked in the disability sector for over 10 years – so it’s not only something I’m passionate about, it’s also an area I know inside and out. Over that time I’ve held a lot of different positions, ranging from direct care through to local government, which has given me a lot of valuable experience and insights.
What has been your favourite Plan Partners moment?
I’ve really enjoyed planning our upcoming NDIS Kicking Goals Expo for North Brisbane and Sunshine Coast. It’s been such a rewarding experience seeing it all come together and knowing that it will help people with disability in my home-state of Queensland to see what’s truly possible on their NDIS journey.
What drives you?
It’s the NDIS Participants and their families that motivate me, and not a day goes by that I’m not inspired by a customer’s determination to own their NDIS journey and really make it their own. It’s also great to come in to work every day knowing that I’m supported by a fantastic and passionate team and able to make a real difference to people’s lives.
What advice would you give someone starting their NDIS Journey?
Remember this is your personal NDIS journey – no one else’s. You’re in the driver’s seat and in charge of your life and your choices. But that doesn’t mean you’re alone, so if you’re not sure what is possible with the NDIS, I’m always happy to show you!
