Chantelle is an energetic and passionate person who does not believe in growing old in spirit. After qualifying as a speech pathologist in 1994 she has gone on to a committed career within the disability sector in both clinical and management roles. She has worked across not for profit, government and private organisations which has given her a broad perspective on how services are operationalised in various settings. She has worked within the NDIS space since it’s trial in 2013 in the Hunter region where she started her own business, online directory service Espyconnect. She is particularly focused on finding solutions for problems and avenues around barriers which occur all too often within the disability and human services sectors for both people with disabilities and workers.
