Meet Therese

You might feel that you already know a lot about Therese, the star of our website. She has personality! – plus boundless energy and a cheeky lively character.

Therese is also a great achiever.

She is an accomplished sporting personality in South Australia. In the 1990s, she won the SA Sports Star of the Year in the Disability Category. Representing Australia and South Australia, she has won gold medals in a number of sports. Not surprisingly, she was chosen to be a torch-bearer for the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000. Her enthusiasm for sport includes being a season ticket-holder at AFL and basketball, eating healthily and staying fit.

Therese works four days a week and has a life goal to find a job in open employment, as she has strong skills in communication, administration and working in a team.

She loves hanging out with friends, getting out and about in the community and spending time with her family.

Her happy home is in Pasadena, which she shares with her brother Michael and sister Lauren.
