“If you have the opportunity to do good, then you should do it. “
Samantha Lawson
Samantha started her employment journey with EPIC Assist back in October 2014. Prior to this, she worked in Aged Care and hospitality. Sam said she enjoys working for an organisation that makes a difference, and working within a team of like minded people with the same goals. Sam wants to be a part of a society where everyone has equal opportunities and are treated fairly. “While this may be only one part of that puzzle, it is a part that I can make a difference in.” When Sam’s not helping make positive changes to our participants lives, she is with her family, puppy, out by the water in the Redlands and exercising.
