Director

Alex started working with people with a disability and mental health 18 years ago, supporting participants with a range of needs including working in the Intensive Behaviour Support Program. Alex worked for several years in Juvenile Detention Centres as a Youth Officer, and Drug Detection Security and Intelligence Officer. 

For the last 6 years, Alex has managed a large team of Support Coordinators and has been supporting participants in the NDIS since the roll out 6 years ago. Prior to this Alex was a caseworker and then Team Leader of the Intensive Family Support (IFSO) Program and Stay Connected program. Alex started Wellspace Australia with the intention to put “quality” as the key driving point. She listened to what NDIS participants had been requesting and decided to turn that dream into a reality.
