A warm welcome to Sandra Kubota Iso, she will be joining the counselling team and based at Ellenbrook .
Sandra brings to the role an experience of immigration, her parents after the second world war migrated from Japan to Brazil as an adult and with her family Sandra migrated from Brazil to become an Australian citizen.
Sandra brings extensive experience to the role having worked in Brazil as a neuro psychologist in private practice and further completed research in schizophrenia. In Australia she has worked alongside Elder people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. Sandra is a passionate social justice advocate, recognising the vulnerabilities women may experience across their life course, whether it be from the migration experience, becoming a mother for the first time or simply the pressures of running a family household. She is looking forward to meeting with women from the Ellenbrook and surrounds communities.
