“We don’t know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have!”
Cindy Wilson
Cindy has over 15 years’ experience working in Employment Services. She first joined EPIC in 2018 before taking a break due to major surgery and returning in 2022. Cindy loves the culture, support, encouragement, and the people at EPIC. She loves how rewarding it is to support people to find meaningful and suitable employment and how this changes their lives completely. Cindy believes that nothing demonstrates your belief in your participant more than showing them that you are on their journey with them. Twice a week, Cindy runs a job club called, “Get the Job” where a small group of participants collectively come together and join her to identify barriers, strategies to overcome fears and objections, reviewing all details within a group to become work ready. She spends her spare time with her family and friends, camping, 4WDing, surfing, gardening, and doing videography.
