What's your background?
I was born and raised in Melbourne. I have never lived anywhere else. The most important stage of my life was dropping university and working full time. In that time, it gave me time to think about what I wanted to do with my life. I started in March, so I am 3 months into the role now. I have enjoyed working here, the team atmosphere is amazing, I couldn’t ask for a much better team.
Could someone with a different background do your job?
Yes, my job is not difficult. Anyone with compassion and patience is ideal for the role.
What's the coolest thing about your job?
The thing I love most about my role is the great team I get to work with. The team here at Dandenong have been so helpful; the atmosphere and relationship we have here is amazing. Especially my mentor, I can’t talk more highly of her.
What are the limitations of your job?
The limitation of the job is that I want to be able to do more, but I know that it is not possible in this kind of environment and the residents that reside here.
