“Persistence beats resistance every single time. It means never give up – keep pushing, keep adapting, keep evolving till you achieve what you want to achieve cause if you are persistent in achieving your goals you will beat a quitter every time.”
Emily Wallace
Emily has been in the employment services sector since 2005 and joined EPIC in February 2013 as an Employment Consultant in Bundaberg. She was promoted to Regional Coordinator in March 2013 for the Bundaberg ESA. Emily loved being involved in a start up site and watching it grow and develop over the years. She became the Employment Services Manager in 2014 and has been in that role (across various titles) ever since. Emily enjoys spending time with her teams and watching them achieve amazing results. She loves the dedication and commitment her teams have to supporting people with disability to realise their potential and it is why she comes to work every day. Emily loves to spend her spare time cooking and hanging out with friends and family.

“At the end, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”

She has eight years of past experience in employment services. Meagan loves the team, culture, and support she receives in her career progression at EPIC.

How Brett’s job gave him the cutting edge

A lot can change in six months when you’re in the right role in a supportive workplace. Just ask Brett.

When Brett moved to the Sunshine Coast looking for employment, his verbal communication skills were minimal, and when he was able to speak, he had a severe stutter. Six months later, Brett is in charge of the forklift operations at Cutting Edge Cabinets.
