My name is Jennie and I’m the Volunteer Coordinator for VincentCare’s Northern Community Hub. I support volunteers at our sites in Glenroy, Sunbury and the southern suburbs.

My career background is quite varied, which I think is a good thing. After doing a BA, I worked in marketing in the publishing industry, at a toy shop while living in London, information management at a law firm, and I’ve run my own dressmaking and craft business.

The commercial business employs people with a disability to refurbish headsets for a major airline, package retail goods and disassemble TVs and computers as part of an e-waste recycling operation, which in the last 12 months diverted over 232,283 kilograms of landfill.

Adam Wadds has worked at Ozanam Enterprises for almost four years now. Adam, who has M.S. previously worked as an English teacher in Japan and brings his valuable teaching skills to his role at Ozanam Enterprises where he works as both manufacturing assistant and staff trainer.

I am currently in my third year of a double degree of social work and psychology at RMIT University. Previously I had completed a diploma of graphic design and had been doing web design for 3 years, when I decided to change my career and completed a diploma of community welfare.
