Social Worker

Amanda joins the Dynamic Ability team with over 15 years experience in the healthcare sector. She began her career in community pharmacy, where her passion for preventative medicine and health education was ignited. From there, Amanda became a Registered Nurse, working in both general medicine and mental health services across the public and private sectors.

Wanting to make a more significant impact on social change, Amanda left nursing and has since completed a Master’s in Social Work. Amanda draws on this social work knowledge to inform her understanding of how people function within their environment, allowing her to examine each situation from multiple perspectives and support individuals to effectively address challenges at an individual, community and societal level. It is this social work perspective that infoms her understanding of the importance of community and social support on a person’s wellbeing and its ongoing impact on a person’s physical, mental, and emotional health.


As a former Registered Mental Health Nurse and qualified Social Worker, Amanda has vast experience in providing brief therapeutic interventions, mental health mentoring and basic counselling services as well as in developing client-directed care plans to meet individual needs. Amanda also brings with her a broad skillset in navigating NDIS, community, and mainstream supports.


In addition to her professional education Amanda also has a lived experience of trauma and addiction. Amanda understands first-hand, the impact stigma and community exclusion has on a persons sense of self-worth and their overall health and wellbeing and is dedicated to supporting her clients to break through these barriers. Having gone through her own mental health journey allows Amanda to walk alongside the people she supports with a truly non-judgemental, compassionate and respectful approach.


Over the past few years, Amanda has immersed herself in the disability sector. First, completing a three month work placement where she gained experience in the role of support coordination and completed a large research project around the delivery of psychosocial supports within the NDIS. Amanda then worked her way up from support worker to team leader for a large NDIS accommodation provider where she managed a team of support workers and oversaw the administration and care of numerous participants.


Amanda draws on her multidiciplanry allied health knowledge and experience to inform her practice which places her in unique position to understand complex health and disability needs. Amanda has exceptional skills in supporting people to achieve their goals and a passion for empowering individuals to build the confidence and skills required to overcome obstacles in their lives.
