am excited to join MNDSA as Volunteer Coordinator. I am a Qualified Social Worker with approximately 12 years’ experience in the aged care sector. This work has included working in a Pastoral Care Role alongside Volunteer Coordination and has enabled me to provide social and emotional support to clients and their families in a palliative care environment. When I am asked what it is that I do, I am always met with “That must be so hard”. I explain that for me, it is an absolute privilege to work with clients who are facing a tough battle and know that I am lucky enough to provide them with support and comfort at a time when they, and their families, might be struggling. I am excited to be working within the MND Volunteer programs and using my skills and knowledge to build these programs so that we can assist and support as many clients and their families as possible. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, dogs, gardening and when we can coordinate our schedules, trying new spots for lunch with my husband and kids.
