Prior to completing her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing, Kelly worked as an Assistant in Nursing in the Residential Aged Care and Paediatric Disability sectors for over four years.  Once graduated, Kelly continued to work in these areas of the health sector for a further five years before identifying her passion for the provision of community-based disability healthcare.

Kelly has worked with those living with disability for over 18 years in a variety of settings, including respite facilities, long-term residential facilities and in the community (in metropolitan, regional and rural areas of NSW and WA).
