Kathleen O’Connor

Team Supervisor

Hello, my name is Kathleen.

I joined Inclusive Support Service in May 2019, firstly as a Disability Support Worker and quickly progressed to Team Leader and now Team Supervisor.

I have the pleasure of leading and mentoring Team Leaders, Support Workers, and supporting many participants in my current role. I have extensive experience in managing a range of diverse people throughout the years in my previous role as a full-time chef (10 years). My role includes, but is not limited to, managing staff, overseeing the daily supports of our participants, making sure our staff are competent and compliant, to ensure they deliver the best service required by our participants.

Since entering the disability sector, I have been afforded the opportunity to build lasting connections with individuals and developed my knowledge and experience caring for individuals with a wide range of disability support needs.  A motivator for me was to see the participants grow and develop their independence, also supporting them to experience things that they previously may not have been able to.  Through my role as a Team Supervisor, I now have the opportunity to support Team Leaders and staff do this to the best of their ability as well as furthering their skills in building participants confidence and independence.  

My leadership experience has given me a hunger for further increasing my knowledge and skills, to continue to turn information into action.

I currently hold a Diploma in Community Services. I’m consistently growing within this ever-changing industry.
