Meet Jodi, a determined 37-year-old from Australia who has navigated life with a strong determination to improve her situation. Despite encountering obstacles, she exemplifies how perseverance can lead to achievement.

Challenges Faced:

Jodi faced physical and emotional barriers due to a spinal disorder and caring responsibilities. She also confronted limits in endurance and manual dexterity. These hurdles could have halted her progress, but she tackled them head-on.

Overcoming Barriers

Jodi’s journey was not solitary. She connected with uLaunch and the support of her Employment Consultant became instrumental in her success. With the organisation’s help, Jodi’s goals crystallized. Despite a waiting period for a required blue card, she remained unwavering. They worked together to explore diverse paths for sustainable employment and education, showcasing her resilience.

Challenges and Achievements:

Jodi’s independence, while a strength, posed a challenge. Seeking work in Cairns while planning a move to Mossman required delicate navigation. The support from uLaunch played a pivotal role in identifying suitable work options that aligned with her career goals, enabling a seamless transition and brighter prospects.

Today, Jodi thrives as an Administrator at Prosaw Australia, a testament to her triumph over adversity. Her journey took an exciting turn with an offer to travel across Australia, supporting training and administration—a true reflection of her growth and dedication.
