“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.

Employment Advisor
“There’s always light at the end of the tunnel.”
Lee Hanretty
This is Lee’s first role within disability employment services, and he is very grateful to be part of the Epic Family. Although a new team member at EPIC Assist, Lee comes from a mixed background of experience and feels that identifying and building rapport with people from all walks of life is his specialty. This is more of a life aspiration then just a job to Lee; being paid to help people, ensure their success, and helping them grow, makes Lee feel good about himself. In Lee’s opinion if you’re going to live a life, leave a legacy – and help others have their own.
