Evelyn is the Program Administrator at SarreODL, providing structure, organisation, follow-through and joy to our team.
Coordinating the technical and administrative aspects of our business, Evelyn handles the scheduling, planning of programs, sourcing resources and liasing with program organisers and participants. She brings a wealth of experience and expertise in coordinating programs, project management and technical know-how, systems and processes.
Evelyn and Debra first met when their children were attending the same primary school, and their paths crossed again years later when Debra was seeking a skilled administrator.
“I’d been waiting for the right position where my passion for people could shine through,” Evelyn says. “I am lucky to work with a beautiful, positive person and we align so well in our values and beliefs. Every morning our day starts with a shared pot of tea, sharing thoughts, knowledge and ideas.”
Evelyn’s passion for people can be seen in her significant community work within the local community and previously in many school committees.
