My name is Kim Morton and I am currently Acting CEO for Hawksbury Community Living Trust. I am based in Christchurch but travel between both regions Dunedin and Christchurch.
I am very fortunate to have spent most of my working life with Hawksbury Trust having started in June 1993. My initial role was as a support worker in one of our Dunedin homes. Over the years I have had many roles including Manager, Team Leader, Coordinator, Operations Manager and now the interim role of Acting CEO.
My passion for the disability sector is a reflection of my commitment to my role. I have empathy and understanding and strive to ensure that the people we support live their lives in an inclusive community achieving in all aspects of their lives to the best of their ability . We encourage, support and admire their determination in what can be daily challenges. I feel that it is a privilege not a given that the people we support come into our lives. Being proud of what we do and how we achieve it, is what drives me to continue to be part of an Organisation that is focused on the people we support to live a life of inclusion and diversity.
My name is Susan McNarn and I am Hawksbury’s Executive Assistant. I am based in the Christchurch office.
I have worked for Hawksbury since 2016 and I love my role. No two days are the same and I get to interact with a wide range of people. I am passionate about working in health as I don’t think there are many other industries where you get to make a positive difference in people’s lives everyday like we do.
My name is Harry. I am originally from India and moved to New Zealand in 2016. I have been working for Hawksbury since 2017.
My role of Personal Support Assistant is to support four young men’s in their daily routine and support them to be more independent in their daily tasks and to help them to achieve their scheduled activities. Every week we are involved in activity like walking, playing soccer, outing with friends and many more.
I enjoy working with Hawksbury because I have learnt many skills, gained knowledge and experience in health and disability sector. Moreover, management of Hawksbury is outstanding, supportive and co-operative with everyone.
