Natasha OʻShannessy

Community Service Facilitator

I have worked at St John’s for just over two years now. I have had the opportunity to develop strong knowledge and skills within the organisation during this time. I started as a Client Service Planner at the Redlynch Office, progressed to a Team Leader at YLV and since then had the opportunity to become a Community Services Facilitator. I am very lucky to be able to work with other facilitators, management and teams across all areas to achieve the best outcomes possible for our clients and staff on a daily basis. St John’s has helped me develop a wide range of skills revolving around Aged Care, Disability and all of the ins and outs of Behavioural participants. I have been very lucky that I have had many opportunities to grown within the organisation.

My confidence has blossomed within this time and will continue to do so with the ongoing support I receive. I love offering all staff support with training and enjoy learning new skills off them too. I am very blessed to have the luxury of working along side amazing people and teams to help assist a variety of participants across the region and I look forward to continuing this throughout my employment.


Rachel Grant

Community Services Facilitator

I have been with St. John’s for over 18months now and within the time I have been able to achieve goals I thought were just dreams. I have always had a passion for helping those who are aged and vulnerable. I have worked in the health industry for over 10 years; however St John’s have allowed me to channel this passion – To help those and their families who surround them. Currently I am a Community Services Facilitator who oversees the planning and quality of services within the Townsville and Cairns regions. Within the role I am able to mentor, coach, inspire and pass on my passion to my teams while ensuring that the level of care and needs of our clients and families who support them are met.

My goal is to continue to provide to the needs of our clients, to fill the gaps in community – to provide the “whole” solution. In saying that, My goal this year is to have our newly built CENTRE BASED RESPITE in Townsville running on a weekly basis. St. John’s can provide a career in which you can grow and reach what some deem impossible.
