Meet the friendly team at DIS
I've been a part of the disability sector since 2005. Beginning in Invercargill with the Disability Resource Centre Southland. And from 2015 at the Disability Information Service Otago.
I enjoy people, sharing in their stories and journey. Helping people source what they need to be informed, make good choices and live great lives is very satisfying.
I began my journey in the sector as an aged care support worker. I have had the privilege to work with some amazing individuals who are striving towards their own personal goals. At the beginning of 2017, I started my role at the Disability Information Service.
Having had my own personal experiences within the health system has helped me form an understanding of what it means to be vulnerable. And how community and social supports can help to enhance a good life.
I believe it’s the smaller things that make the biggest difference!
