Nicole Plasajec – Customer Service Officer Yarra Junction Hub
As a local resident and the newly appointed Customer Service Officer at our Yarra Junction Community Hub, Nicole is very in tune with current community needs. Having lived in town for two years and growing up in the Eastern Suburbs, she spends her spare time hiking in the mountains or enjoying brunch in one of the local cafes.
Having completed her Dual Diploma in Counselling and Community Services, Nicole has a deepened understanding of community needs and wants. Previously employed as a psychologist intake worker, she has a greatened sense of mental health concerns and how it can impact health and wellbeing, and the hardships one can face.
Nicole’s desire to help others is what drives her, with her number one goal being that those who are the most vulnerable in the community have their voices heard and needs met. She continuously engages with community members and local organisations for feedback on what current concerns are present, including increasing the food relief services available at the hub. Nicole is on the search for new activities to get the community socialising, to provide them with a welcoming, fun and safe place, and to further strengthen the support network within the local community.
