Our Beginning:

Our founders started as teacher aides at Narbethong State Special School. When their contracts ended they formed their own company to continue working with the children they had become fond of and familiar with. The partnership grew into a company and now Precious Angels In-Home Care employ over 40 “Angels”. The members of the team are located mainly in the Brisbane area, but we are increasing our range south and west to assist more families. We now have a branch in Mackay as well. 

Precious Angels In-Home Care Ltd are a registered National Disability Insurance Service (NDIS) Provider.

My background is diverse. I have a double degree in Commerce and Leisure Management, and after years of working in the Public Service, came to this industry later in life. Although I don’t have any special need children in my home life, I recognised my niche when I was working at Narbethong. I found such a connection with these children and couldn’t imagine any other career. Currently I’m studying for my Certificate IV in Individual Support (Disability). I’ve found my passion and follow it willingly.


As a parent of a disabled child, I’ve been able to offer insight to the Precious Angels team from the perspective of families that for years have endured a lack of quality respite. I understand the feeling of being unheard and invisible at times. I have shared many of the struggles that today’s families are still experiencing within the current framework of disability services. My focus is on long-term goals of support for families as I know first-hand that stability, reliability and quality are key to future happiness of the complete family unit.


I began my working life as a Caravan and Motor Body Builder, but have been a stay-at-home Dad for our 3 children since 1998 and am now a proud Poppy as well.

One of my strongest values is treating people with the dignity and respect we all deserve regardless of our personal situations, whatever they may be. In Precious Angels I see an organisation with this value at it's core and staff who genuinely care. I couldn’t be prouder to be a Director and help maintain this exceptional standard in whatever way I can.
