Admin/Job Search Officer Glen Waverley
Kim joined DVJS early in 2016 as a Job Search Officer for the Glen Waverley and Box Hill sites. She grew up in Birmingham in the United Kingdom, moved to Australia with her family in 1968, studied mediaeval history and psychology at Adelaide University in South Australia and has worked all over Australia and in London.
In 2010 Kim was a senior marketing manager at Telstra when she was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, a condition that has left her with significant brain scarring, chronic pain - especially in her hands - and chronic fatigue.
Kim had to learn how to use dictation software, a process that led her to discover a passion for writing. She has now penned three novels and a soon to be released self-help book on tackling life head on despite debilitating fatigue.
Kim knows first-hand what a difference employment makes in enhancing a person's sense of self-worth, and really enjoys supporting the DVJS team and our clients.
