Role: Development Manager - Carer Learning and Wellbeing Resource Service

I am the Development Manager for SAMS (Standards & Monitoring Service) and my focus is the project management and development of the national Carer Learning and Wellbeing Resource Service.

I have been working for SAMS since 2005. Other responsibilities within SAMS includes the facilitation of a range of training workshops as a Facilitator, project management, resource development and leading developmental evaluations for MSD or MoH funded disability support services. I have worked in this area for over 20 years, in a variety of roles for a range of different disability organisations. 

My work experience has included: working for a range of organisations that support disabled people in a variety of ways (ie, through employment, community involvement, social/recreational activities and residentially), project management (particularly around setting up new initiatives), roles which support advocacy and self-advocacy, setting up and managing a new supported employment and transition service, writing and facilitating training modules (for ASENZ, SAMS and other not for profit trusts), and being a Board member for local, regional and national organisations.  I have a BA in Psychology, post graduate Diploma in Rehabilitation and completed the Change Management Foundation and Practitioner course in 2016.

 I work in this area because of my own (and my families) experience of disability; which has shaped who I am, the values that are important to me and therefore the work that I do.  I feel privileged to have the opportunity to listen to, and work with, the wide variety of people I meet through SAMS.
