Finance Administrator

My journey with Breakaway started in 2015 when I came on board as a volunteer. I then became a permanent employee in 2016 and have loved being a part of the family. What I appreciate most about Breakaway is my work life balance, a friendly and fun atmosphere, definitely the interpersonal relationships and I am always learning something new!

Community Access & Movement Co.

My team call me the energizer bunny. I have been part of the Breakaway team for just over 11 years and have worked in a variety of roles. I have a strong belief in the vision and the values that are the foundations of Breakaway, but what I value most is how our vision and values are dynamic and designed to empower a positive pathway for our families and guests. I feel very fortunate in my role as I have been able to build strong and supportive relationships with our families. The future excites me and I am looking forward to being a part Breakaways future and growth.

Respite House Team Leader

I have 20 years experience in the disability sector, with 14 of those years being spent at Breakaway Inc. I began in a support workers role in our Respite House and I have also worked in a variety of supports within our service, including In-Home and Community Access. I was excited to step up into a team leaders role in 2015 and especially love getting to connect with our families even more. The best thing about working with Breakaway is the family focus and how we pride ourselves on being a helping hand for the families.

I have loved seeing how much Breakaway has grown and flourished over the years and I have enjoyed being part of our guests’ everyday lives. I especially love working in the Independent Living houses and am very passionate about making them into stable forever-homes and seeing our ladies and gentlemen live happy lives.
