Meet our team
At futures in sight we have a great team working together to get the best outcomes for people.
I have more than 15 years’ experience working in the private sector focusing on customer service. I’ve worked as an Account Maintenance Officer and an Investigation Officer for one of the major banks and maintained business accounts for companies such as P&O Container, GE Finance, Pricewaterhouse Coopers. I enjoy helping my customers and providing service to others. I believe good customer service is one of the key factors in establishing a company’s reputation.
Through my son, Nilesh, who has Autism, I have gained a lot of experience working with children with disability. I feel privileged to be part of fis and I am dedicated to helping participants. I enjoy nature and am passionate about flowers. I love gardening and I keep tropical plants and flowers in my garden. I also teach authentic Sri Lankan cooking in my son’s school community.
I came to fis in 2020 after many years as an English Language teacher working at colleges and universities in Australia, Vietnam and Chile. Some abilities I’ve found essential both in my last job and at fis are clear communication and a focus on the needs of others. My past work experience also includes administration in employee relations and market research. I thought I would miss the relationships with students but, after a year, it has been rewarding to form new relationships in my role in the Invoice Processing Team.
I live in Katoomba and find beauty in the cold, misty weather and the stunning nature of this region. I am happiest hanging out with my kids and enjoying good food and wine. I am also known to spend time bushwalking, throwing boozy dinner parties and going out to hear live music – usually not all on the same day.
I have worked in a variety of roles with people with disability, those living with mental illness and vulnerable young people for over 25 years. I value connections and community and spend my time, both paid and unpaid, immersed in both of those things. Living in the Blue Mountains, I enjoy the surrounding natural environment but am also drawn to the salt water of the coast.
People are at the core of my motivation, interest and passion. I believe that every person has strengths and gifts to share and that a truly inclusive community not only recognises that fact but celebrates it. One of the things that I am most passionate and excited about is a community art and literature festival in the Blue Mountains that combines many of my favourite things, community, connection and creativity. The festival aims to provide a platform for people with a lived experience of mental illness to create and exhibit their art, while challenging stigma and celebrating creativity and resilience.
