What I enjoy: Motorbike Riding, Fishing, Swimming, Kayaking, Drawing/ painting, Making furniture out of pallets. I started working with children at the age of 18 when I did a job traineeship for a cert III in children’s services. I have worked in the industry for 15yrs with ongoing learning and training to maintain and grow my knowledge. My strong point within the industry is working with children/youth who have trauma based backgrounds and are in and out of home care. I have worked with children in these circumstances for the last 6 years and I am qualified with a diploma of mental health.
