Therapy Care Blacktown’s Vanessa Grima is one of five finalists nominated for the Allied Health Awards ‘Allied Health Assistant of the Year’!
“I am so grateful to have been chosen. I absolutely love what I do and know what a privilege it is to support people living with disability as they work towards their goals,” says Vanessa.
Vanessa first came on board the Therapy Care team to complete a university placement; a requirement of her Bachelor of Health Science (Sport and Exercise Science) degree.
The team were quick to realize what an asset Vanessa was and asked her to join the team permanently! In the year and a half Vanessa has been at Therapy Care, she’s been an incredible support to many participants.
Allied Health Manager, Natalie Delana, says, “I am so proud of Vanessa. She has blown us away with her caring nature and dedication to her participants.
“She has supported many participants on their journey to increasing their fitness levels and functionality. By doing so, she has empowered them to be more independent and confident in their ability to access the community and engage in recreational activities including gaining employment.”
The winner of the Allied Health Assistant of the Year will be announced at the Allied Health Awards Gala on September 25. We wish you the best of luck Vanessa!
