Using life experience as career inspiration

"You can play a part in really changing another person’s world."

Nina Crumpton - Diploma of Community Services, Diploma of Counselling

At age 38, Nina Crumpton found out she had multiple sclerosis (MS), an incurable condition of the central nervous system. Despite the diagnosis, she enrolled at TAFE NSW and completed a community services and a counselling course.

Nina encourages others in the disabled community to use their experience as a platform to gaining employment in the NDIS sector.

“It’s actually an advantage to have a disability if you’re working in this field, because you have a greater empathy and understanding,” says Nina, whose qualifications earned her an opportunity to work as an NDIS support co-ordinator with the MS Society.
