“Nothing can describe the feeling of seeing someone else success when they have had so many struggles or setbacks.”
Amy Wright
Amy was working in retail supporting one of EPIC’s participants through work experience when she was offered the chance to work in the disability industry and has never looked back. Amy started with Ability Tasmania Group in 2013 and came over to EPIC Assist when the organisations merged in 2016. She has had many roles within ATG and EPIC but by far enjoys her current role the most. Amy enjoys making an individual connection with each participant and assisting them to succeed. Amy enjoys spending her free time with her family, friends and fur children.

Employment Consultant
“Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly. But the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.”
Nancy Woodfield
Nancy joined EPIC in March 2022. She has a background working in healthcare and recently completed an Associate Degree in Applied Health and Community Support. Nancy enjoys the fresh perspective and dedication that school leaver participants bring to employment services. Her favourite aspect is being part of a participant’s growth in self-confidence. For Individuals living with disability, there are many barriers created by society. Nancy believes the most significant barriers to overcome are the attitudes and beliefs we place upon ourselves. Nancy says that working at EPIC is an extremely rewarding career: she has the opportunity to influence a participant’s growth in self-esteem and their journey to success, whether that be through attaining meaningful employment or simply learning a new skill.
