How did you first come to the disability sector?
Prior to working in the disability sector, I had the opportunity to work in both aged care and hospital setting. However, after completing my nursing degree, I wanted to use my skills and expertise in a different sector within healthcare and that’s when I decided to join the disability sector. I had previously heard about NDIS and the disability service providers but never had the chance to explore the sector in much detail.
