"Hi I’m Libby⁠. I’m the administration officer at abbaCare’s office in Cairns.⁠ I joined the abbaCare family in April 2020 and since commencement, I have enjoyed my interactions with staff and participants and love being a part of a great team.⁠ I like to think of myself as a problem-solver and enjoy helping others. I go home at the end of each day with a great sense of achievement knowing that I’ve helped someone or done something that has lightened someone else’s load.⁠ As an employee at abbaCare, I feel my work and ideas are valued and appreciated.⁠ It’s great to be working with such a dedicated group of people from diverse backgrounds, who are committed to assisting our participants to achieve their goals and who bring fun, hope and laughter to the people they’re supporting."
