If you told me as a twenty year new graduate nurse that in the future I would work in Aged Care and become the CEO of an organisation such as Presbyterian Support South Canterbury I would have said no way. Yet 35 years later here I am. I am proud and honoured to be appointed to such a position.
Presbyterian Support South Canterbury celebrates 100 years of service in South Canterbury this year so it is a very special time for the organisation. PSSC works with the very young, the very old, and everyone in between. I am lucky to have a high calibre team and supportive Board to assist me on my new journey. Much has been accomplished over the years yet there remains much to do. The number of older people needing assistance is growing and poverty continues to wreak havoc among families. As an organisation we will work hard to assist where we can but we need the continued support of the community. As I look to the future I truly believe that together we can achieve so much more. What a great time to be starting in my new role.
