On this episode, Samantha talks with Kelly Gray. The Founder of My Care My Choice.
Over the past 13 years, Kelly has gone from a receptionist and student with a limited understanding of ageing issues to a leader in helping seniors find their voice and share experiences in Western Australia’s aged and community care space. As a young leader (and Generation Y) she’s put in the hard yards, with over 200 hours of research on co-design in care environments, implementing these practices across Australia, and has also helped care provider prepare for new business models in the Consumer Directed Care environment here in Australia.
Kelly’s journey of being a social entrepreneur will inspire you. We’ll touch on our shared passion for workforce flexibility but mainly we’ll discuss why it’s important to find your champions, chat about the challenges she’s faced, and you’ll hear her passion for meeting people as equals on our journey to creating new solutions.
