There are some people you meet that just have a zest for life; people whose passion and enthusiasm shines through and creates a ripple effect in the community around them. Bree is one such person, and she’s been putting smiles on faces at EPIC’s Caloundra office since she connected with us in 2016.
“Bree is such a positive and enthusiastic person to be around, we all enjoy talking to Bree when she comes into the office,” says Employment Consultant Danni Leske.
“She’s interested in so many different activities in the community; ten-pin bowling, swimming and table tennis. Honestly, she just loves life, and is a joy to be around.”
EPIC has helped Bree into two different roles since 2016; first as a trolley collector with Singh Enterprises, and more recently delivering pamphlets for eight hours a week.
“Bree’s current job is such a good fit for her,” says Danni.
“She loves exercise and being outside, and will often send through a picture of how many steps she has done during her shift. She can walk up to nine kilometres throughout her shift, which is a great achievement.”
One of Bree’s greatest athletic achievements has been her performance in last year’s Special Olympics.
“Bree attended the Special Olympics for swimming and placed in every race she competed in!” says Danni.
“She received gold in 100m freestyle, gold in 50m backstroke, silver in 50m freestyle and fourth place in 50m freestyle relay.”
Bree’s other interests include going to the movies, barracking for the Brisbane Broncos and looking after her pet bird. She has been participating in art classes lately, and is looking forward to displaying some of her artwork in EPIC’s Caloundra office in the near future.
