With a love for helping others and making them feel heard, Jodie is ready to take a lead role at Workpower and lead the way in the disability sector.
“I have a passion to help people achieve their chosen goals,” Jodie said.
“I have always enjoyed making people feel empowered to make choices, grow and learn in the community.”
Runs in the family
For some people, they may stumble upon a role or area that they enjoy. For Jodie, helping people has always been on the cards.
With her mother, grandparents, aunties, and sister having worked or working in the disability sector in some way, it wasn’t a surprise that Jodie also took this path.
“You could almost say it’s in my blood to be supporting people,” Jodie said.
“I have grown up helping in aged care and then found my passion in disability while doing my allied health training and since then, I haven’t looked back.”
Joining the team at Workpower, Jodie is already applying her learned skills from 25 years in the industry to help customers figure out their goals and reach their fullest potential.
Achieving goals with the Workpower team
The role of Manager Community Supports is a diverse role with many moving parts. Jodie is able to bring her experience and passion for the sector and help to guide support coaches with their supports.
“It’s about making sure they are the right fit for people who are engaging in our supports,” Jodie said.
“It is my goal to ensure we are teaching people tangible life skills to use in all aspects of their lives and at their pace. This is something I am passionate about having people be as independent as they possibly can be.”
