Robyn McKern joined Parkinson’s NSW as an NDIS Advocate early in 2023.
The role of an Advocate is to help Parkinson’s NSW clients navigate the often complex processes required to obtain financial support from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Robyn came to us from Dementia Australia where she was on the National Intake Team for more than five years. Prior to that she was with the Asthma Foundation for many years, culminating in a role as Health Professional Liaison.
“I joined Parkinson’s NSW because I like organisations that work for a purpose, and this role enables me to make a real difference in people’s lives by helping them gain access to services,” she said.
When she is not working, Robyn likes travel, reading and remaining physically active.
