Work days: Monday – Wednesday

My Story: I am Rosemarie Mason originally from New South Wales in the Western suburbs of Sydney. I came to Queensland in 2002 with my partner and two-year-old daughter. My working years have involved working with children as a Nanny, People with a disability and the elderly in a variety of places in NSW, QLD, as well as four years in Vancouver Canada.

I am honoured to be able to work at Koobara. I feel that something has been missing from my life as my mother hardly ever spoke about her childhood. Working at Koobara will help me get a better understanding of the importance of having a Service such as this. Since working at Koobara, I have gained so much confidence and respect for myself as well as a sense of belonging to a community.
