Plan Manager

Before joining the Lighthouse Disability Plan Management team, Chris spent fifteen years working in the not-for-profit sector. For twelve of those, she was the Senior Finance Officer at an Aboriginal organisation in Alice Springs. She loved supporting different projects that improved the living conditions in regional communities all over the top-end, such as infrastructure development, fuel deliveries, and education programs.

One day, Chris saw a temp role going at Lighthouse Disability. She applied, became a Plan Manager, and did such a good job that she was made permanent. Chris says the best part of the job is having contact with clients. All she has ever wanted to do in her career is use her skills to help others, and she enjoys getting to do this every day as a Plan Manager.

“I have enjoyed my time as a volunteer and appreciate your support provided over the last two years. Thank you very much!”
