Administration and Grant Coordinator
After completing SeeMore's challenge with a previous Ballarat based employer many years ago, I attended a KIDS Foundation function in Ballarat. I was shown a video about the camps, and I enquired about becoming a volunteer. My first camp was at Seaworld Nara Resort in 2006.
Having attended numerous Phoenix and Tango camps over the last 17 years, I have become part of the "KIDS" family. My children and foster children have also attended some of these camps and found a place of belonging.
Since becoming involved with KIDS as a volunteer, I have formed very close friendships with many of the staff and participants.
After raising money for the KIDS Foundation, I was rewarded on two occasions to feature on "Adventure Allstars" a travel and adventure series. The second episode as a chosen "legend" and this episode is yet to air later this year.
With extensive community service, administration and sales experience, I have joined the team for two days a week. This allows me to spend time with my children and three young grandchildren, whilst being involved in work that I am truly passionate about.
