Who am I?

I am a passionate person who loves working in an engaged and supportive environment to deliver amazing service and care to customers as part of a team. I have high empathy which enables me to understand the needs of our customers and to provide a service that exceeds their expectations. I am motivated to add value to Coastal Home Care’s goal of supporting older Australians to remain living at home with quality care and services. I am looking for an opportunity to join a growing organisation where I will be challenged and I can make a real difference to older people’s lives.

As a high-performing individual, I love both the scope and accountability that comes from working within an open structure. I treat everyone with respect and show humility with all interactions. I believe that Coastal Home Care makes a real difference to our customers lives and I work to ensure that I can also make a difference to what we do and the service we deliver. I am thoughtful, flexible, compassionate, kind and value relationships. I work for Coastal Home Care!
