Building meaningful connections, helping with independence, and promoting inclusivity are rewarding aspects of working in the disability.

    Basketball, Rugby & athletics have always been a passion of mine. Spending time with my kids. Whether we are playing games, exploring new activities, or just sharing moments together.

    My favourite aspect of disability support is the overall journey and seeing their potential destination. Seeing barriers/challenges our participants face daily; giving them the opportunity to overcome those challenges, knowing that every small step is closer to reaching the greatest version of themselves. Seeing the positive life-changing effect, support workers can have on the families and most of all our participants lives is the most rewarding part and satisfying feeling that no other job could give me.

    I’m Maka, and I am a Team Leader providing Roster Oversight at Teuila.

    My responsibilities involve overseeing the roster for all of our Support Workers. In a Support Worker capacity, I provide support to our participants in Respite Care and daily living. My main role is leading our team and supporting our participants to achieve their goals.

    With five years’ experience in Disability Support work, my favourite thing about the role is meeting new clients — no day is ever the same.

    Getting to know our participants on a personal level and seeing the world through their eyes is so rewarding. I love helping our participants achieve goals that may seem small to people outside of the disability support industry yet are a massive accomplishment for us.

    In my spare time I get into gaming and growing my skills as a barber.

    General Manager

    I’m Liz and I bring 15 years’ experience working with children with disabilities. I come from a background in Education, holding a Bachelor of Arts – Education and a Diploma of Education and Care.

    My favourite thing about working at Teuila is creating programs for our participants to reach their life goals. This could be a cooking program to teach them skills in the kitchen or how to follow a daily routine by creating visual templates for their bedroom.

    I find my role really rewarding and love when we are able to keep our participants busy with their weekly program schedules. When our participants are happily engaged in their daily program, this indicates the positive impact we are making in their lives, so this is really important to me.

    In my down time I like getting comfortable in my oodie and playing fun games with my kids and family.
