Meet Sandra

Sandra

Hi, my name is Sandra. I have just finished my training to become a Peer Mentor, and I am looking forward to meeting new people, and listening to their stories.

I have one daughter, who lives in a unit by herself close to where I live. Together, we self manage her NDIS plan, so that she can live the life she wants to, just like any other young lady in her twenties.

I have had many occupations, but the one I enjoyed the most  was being a teacher librarian and reading books to children.  It was great to share my favourite stories and help them find books they could love. Even though I don’t teach any more, I still like to help others find that special “something” that has meaning for them.

As a mentor I would like to work together with a peer to help them:

  • recognise their personal strengths and skills
  • look for opportunities to try new things
  • try to find different ways of doing things

My favourite thing to do is to try new experiences. I like to remake or remodel something old so it is new and useful again.

I like to add a “life tick” as often as possible….it might be finding a new author to read, a plant for my garden I haven’t ever grown before, a new song on the radio or a different walking track to try.

This year my “life tick” is learning to stand up paddleboard.
