This was an invaluable experience to work in a role that was flexible toward the individual needs of community members. This lead to a position with Lifeline to develop and implement a Financial Counselling Service in the community, Deb then moved to become a project officer who was responsible for the planning, implementation and review of individual programs for individuals with a disability who resided in group homes. She then accepted the position of general manager of the disability service. This provided her with the opportunity to teach the required skills and knowledge needed in this field. Deb became hands on with recruitment, induction and training of support staff. She then gained further experience in the aged care community sector and the staff required to support client needs. Her experience enabled her to established DPT in 2009 which has grown to 9 locations training in the Health, Aged Care and Disability sectors.
