Zenon Culbert joined Parkinson’s NSW as an NDIS Support Coordinator early in 2023. His role is to connect NDIS clients who have been allocated a support package with the services they require.
Zenon worked as a disability support worker during his university years.
In addition to this experience, he describes himself as being quite community-minded. He was drawn to politics shortly after university – even going as far as standing for Labor pre-selection during an election campaign.
Zenon is also very entrepreneurial, having run his own signage company for seven years. This taught him the value of relationships with his customers and delivering excellent service.
“I’m used to dealing with the public and – as a former support worker and provider of services – I can convert those diverse experiences to help NDIS clients identify and fund the services they require,” Zenon said.
Zenon swims and surfs to escape day-to-day stresses, as well as using yoga and meditation to relax. Family is also important to him.
