She then transferred to the Community Health sector and managed Frail Aged and Dementia Specific Day Care Centers, Carer Respite Services and Complex Community Case Management Services.
After the birth of her two children, she transitioned to private enterprise, partnering with her husband in their own engineering business. Following the sale of the company in 2019, Meredith was able to reassess her options and decided to return to a focus of helping others in the community. She became one of our Support Service Coordinators, while also leaving room for her passion projects - volunteering for animal charities (Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and Cat Protection Society).
The Support Services Coordinator role enables her to utilise her skills and experience in patient/client advocacy, service development and health professional education and training. She readily admits that she had not previously heard of Neurofibromatosis, but has made it a mission to learn and research the condition and to raise awareness, particularly amongst medical and health professionals.
