She succeeds Felicity Jones in this role. Felicity has moved to the role of Client Services Coordinator for Parkinson’s NSW.
Cassie moved from her hometown in Warrnambool, Victoria, to take up her new job.
She completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree at Deakin University before conducting research in the Aged Care space, and then worked in local government delivering Social Connection projects.
“My studies in Health Sciences have enhanced my understanding of Parkinson’s and how the disease can impact a person’s physical, social, and mental health and wellbeing,” said Cassie.
“I’m excited to use my background in community engagement to connect people living with Parkinson’s and their carers to Parkinson’s NSW Support Groups across the state.
“I’m passionate about increasing the reach and engagement of Support Groups – and look forward to working closely with them to provide a safe space and social connections for people living with Parkinson’s and their carers.”
