Age – 33
Position – CDS Support Worker
Time in role – 2 years as fulltime staff but before that I was doing prac here.
What do you like most about your role and CDS? Variety in the role each day is great. No two days are the same. I also get to laugh a lot.
Why are you working in this industry? Fell into but always something I had an interest in. Like to help people and see them fulfil their potential.
If you weren’t in this industry what would you be doing? Native nursery – I like gardening and farming so I am a bit of a green thumb.
What is the greatest myth in this industry? That people with a disability are less than. In many areas they are more than. They have much greater capacity for joy, love, wonder and acceptance. The other myth is – just because you can’t talk doesn’t mean you don’t have anything to say.
If you were CEO for a day what would you change first? Better access to more resources to help staff and clients. Anything that will make the job a bit easier. Also, better communication between staff so we are all on the same page more often and things run smoothly.
