How did you first come to the disability sector?
In disability sector I knew that I can excel in this job. Being a Registered Nurse in the Philippines, I handled a lot of clients especially under geriatrics and paediatrics. I studied my Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) here in Australia and with that knowledge and skills I can apply what I learned. As an experienced nurse for more than 5 years in a hospital, I’m confident that I can give my best quality care I can provide.
