Employee Profile - Kerrin Smith

Kerrin has an extensive education background working with children who have disabilities. Living in Western Queensland for over 20 years, Kerrin has a love of the land and is a hard worker. During her time in Western Queensland, she educated her 3 sons via distance education and worked with her husband on the property.

Kerrin has been living in the CQ region for the last 5 years and has been working at Excelcare since she moved to Rockhampton. During her time at Excelcare she has been a support worker as well as a co-ordinator in aged care, disability, child safety and mental health. Kerrin is now the NDIS Co-ordinator for the Central region which stretches right down to Bundaberg. Her role is to get the communities in the region ready to deliver NDIS services. She is really excited about the NDIS roll-out in her region and says it will be the best thing for participants to be able to have choice and control.

Kerrin loves the variety of consumers Excelcare provides support for and enjoys the fact that her role is diverse and challenging. She is excited about being on the brink of a brand new way of delivering support to people and can’t wait to see it roll out.

Kerrin loves her job and says that she feels it is what she was meant to do with her life.

Her passion for ensuring people are not labelled and that everyone has equal opportunity to participate in their lives is something that makes Kerrin an asset to the Excelcare team.

After years of being on the land, Kerrin is a self proclaimed “bushy” and loves a good chat. She will talk to anybody and everybody so feel free to give her a call to discuss how the NDIS may affect you or your family.

Excelcare aims to ensure that consumers have access to services that are relevant to their individual needs and their carers. Across a variety of services including aged care, disability, mental health and child safety, we ensure that individuals and/or their advocates and carers have input into decisions about the care and services that they receive.
