Meet our team!
Tasja, Centre Manager
Tasja’s dream sandwich would be fresh wholegrain bread, lashings of mayonnaise,
thick avocado, tasty sliced cheese, lettuce, tomato, salt and pepper!
Brad, Senior Practitioner, headspace
For Brad there has to be steak on his dream sandwich… with caramelised onion, cheese,
tomato, lettuce and some sort of homemade tomato sauce or chutney, and maybe a touch of mustard.
Mel, Administration Services Officer
Mel would own a velociraptor dinosaur if she could, because then she could be
best friends with Chris Pratt after they bonded over their love of these fierce dinos.
Kylie, Administration Services Officer
Kylie loves the smell of the ocean… to her there is nothing that smells as good,
feels as good or is as relaxing as sitting on the sand and breathing in fresh, salty sea air.
Janelle, Allied Health Worker
If Janelle could use one word to describe the headspace team, she would say ‘amazing’.
Imogen, Allied Health Worker
Imogen thinks all pizza toppings are great, except anchovies! But if she had to pick her fav topping,
she would pick Hawaiian! And yes, pineapple definitely belongs on pizza according to Imogen.
Amy, Allied Health Worker
Not a doubt, Amy would be Moaning Myrtle if she was a Harry Potter character.
Jordan, Youth Worker
Jordan is inspired by those who go after what they believe in with everything they have.
She thinks believing in something and in yourself enough to chase it against all odds is an incredibly brave feat!
Kym, Youth Worker & Dr Leopold, Therapy Cat
Kym admires people with the characteristic of ‘kindness’, because it’s brave, inspiring and fun.
Dr Leopold loves coming to headspace every Wednesday and hanging out with young people!
Ash, Youth Worker
Ash recently found out that her patronus is an otter. Otters are engaging creatures overflowing with positive energy.
Intelligent and bright, they are also popular, eminently lovable and display the highly developed social skills that
typify the small carnivores. Otters mix easily with a wide range of animal personalities #Accurate.
Trudi, Case Manager, Mount Gambier Project
Youth inspire Trudi. Their resilience, their energy and their ability to so easily love and so easily forgive.
Trudi believes youth are inspiring because they are the creative visionaries of the future. She finds It exciting
to watch young people find their way and flourish. Having endured and survived a few hardships of her
own during her youth, Trudi now appreciates being able to encourage young people to follow their hearts
and chase their dreams. "It is all possible, if you only believe".
Mikarla, Community Liaison Worker/Youth Worker
Mikarla’s favourite part of her job is working with the headspace
volunteers and other young people to plan and hold fun youth events.
And meet some of our consortium partners and private practitioners…
(you can meet with these people at headspace for free too!)
Ashlie, Community Mental Health Practitioner, Mind Australia
Ashlie’s favourite smell in the whole world is the smell of the beach,
the smell of the salt water is relaxing and refreshing, pure happiness!
Tim, Alcohol and Other Drugs Counsellor, Life Without Barriers
Tim admires people who can play instruments, he’s good at air guitar
but jealous of people who can do the real deal!
Jennie, Private Practitioner, Mental Health Social Worker
(To see Jennie you will need a Mental Health Treatment Plan from your doctor - chat to Mel or Kylie for more info)
To relax, Jennie likes to read, do gardening, and catch up with friends.
Greg, Youth Mental Health Nurse, Community Mental Health
Greg thinks out of all the animals, a human represents him the best, because he is one!
