Welcome Ashley to the Team

Hi I’m Ashley!

I have worked in the Aged Care Sector for 10 years, which I fell in love with. I started my career in the kitchen, cleaning, and laundry services of a residential care facility, whilst completing my certificate 3 in Aged Care and Community Care. I have a passion for helping people when I can. In my personal time I love camping and boating and spending time with my family.

Since starting at PACS, everyone I have spoken to and met have been lovely and Im hoping that once COVID-19 restrictions ease, I am able to get out and meet some of the lovely clients and staff.

I am very excited to see what the future holds.
