Patrick Trout with new volunteer Reshelle Van Dyk

RESHELLE Van Dyk loves helping people. In fact, it is her passion and she confesses that even if she wasn’t at Currajong Disability Services (CDS) she would still be helping others somehow.

“I have always wanted to get into the disability industry,” said Reshelle.

“Having just finished my six month TAFE course I now have on-site training,” she said.

“It is a dream come true to finally be in the industry I have studied hard for.

“Now I hope this work placement becomes fulltime work in this sector – especially with Currajong Disability Services who have been great!”

After hearing how great CDS was through friend Rhys Forrestal she decided to give CDS a call and the rest is history.

“It’s fantastic here and everyone has been so supportive,” said Reshelle.

“It was a challenge relocating and coming to Parkes for work and study but completely worth it.

“I just hope I can do a good job, help build the new team culture and try to change public perceptions about people with disabilities who understand more than they are given credit for,” she said.

“I get a real buzz out of this and couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.”
