I have always valued and appreciated the service Interchange has provided to people with disabilities, I am grateful for the support they gave (and continue to give) to me and my family.
After a 25 year teaching career, I decided it was time for change, and completed post graduate studies in counselling. I now work as a Gambler’s Help counsellor.
I am married with three children and four grandchildren. I have lived in the Latrobe Valley for most of my life, and worked for many years in the public hospital sector as a Registered Nurse. More recently in a management position in Aged Care.
